The Niagara Falls Boys & Girls Club Endowment Fund is being established to provide security for the Club for future generations. We believe that all kids should have a chance to be great in their own unique way. There are many creative ways for you to leave a legacy of hope and opportunity for future generations of deserving kids.
Memorials - Special gift given in memory of a loved one or a friend. Each memorial gift is recorded and an acknowledgement is sent to the donor and the family.
Planned Gifts: So many options. See some below, but contact the Club so we can walk you through donating to our future!
Planned gifts are long-range contributions that will ensure the longevity of our organization and sustain our important work with kids. There are many options for leaving a planned gift to the Club. Consult your financial planner or attorney as to which vehicle would work best for you.
In your will or living trust: A simple charitable bequest can provide very meaningful support for our mission as well as reduce the amount of estate and inheritance taxes paid. Bequests may be specific assets or amounts, or they may be proportional or residual in nature.
In a new or existing life insurance policy: Many people have life insurance policies that are no longer needed for their original purposes. Such policies can be given to the Boys & Girls Club and an income tax deduction can be taken for the cash surrender value. Plus the annual premiums on a new or existing policy given to the Boys & Girls Club irrevocably may also be tax-deductible. Without giving up ownership of your life insurance policy, you can still designate the Boys & Girls Club as a whole or partial death beneficiary. Contact your insurance company for a Change of Beneficiary form.
A gift of stocks, bonds and financial accounts. Most checking, savings and brokerage accounts can be bequeathed to the Boys & Girls Club through a simple "payable upon death” designation with your financial institution.
A gift of retirement benefits. Naming the Boys & Girls Club as primary, partial or contingent beneficiary of your retirement plan is a simple, practical gift idea. Contact your plan custodian for the proper beneficiary change form.
Charitable Gift Annuity. A charitable annuity allows you to contribute assets to the Club and receive a charitable deduction. In turn, we will provide you with a guaranteed income stream for life ( the payout will be contingent upon personal factors of the donor). This vehicle can ease the worries of outliving your resources and provide a high payout rate, coupled with numerous tax advantages.
