Planned Giving

A planned gift is a gift that comes from sources other than current expendable income and is based on total assets. It is generally part of a total estate plan and may take effect during the donor’s life or after death.

You can help ensure the future of our programs by making a planned gift to the Club. These types of gifts can provide you with substantial tax savings and deductions and, at the same time, make an everlasting impact on the future of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Durham and Orange Counties. The planned giving information listed here highlights basic elements. Because every person’s financial and charitable objectives differ, a plan should be customized to meet your specific needs. Explore your planned giving options by working with a qualified attorney, certified financial planner, or other professional financial planner.

How to Make a Planned Gift

Remember, legal documents should be prepared by an attorney. Please use our legal name, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Durham and Orange Counties when planning a gift to us. A request for information is not considered an obligation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Durham and Orange Counties. All communication will be held in strict confidence.

Other Forms of Planned Giving

There are many other ways to make a planned gift. These include:

Securities

Due to tax considerations, donors can often give more at no greater cost to themselves, by giving securities (stocks, bonds, etc.). Mutual fund shares can also be given with the same beneficial effect.

Bank Account or Certificate of Deposit

When you open a bank account or set up a CD, you can name the Boys & Girls Clubs of Durham and Orange Counties as a beneficiary. Your banking institution can provide a beneficiary designation form.

Life Insurance

You may name the Boys & Girls Clubs of Durham and Orange Counties as the direct beneficiary of all or part of your life insurance policy, or as a co-beneficiary or contingent beneficiary. You may also donate your paid-up life insurance policy to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Durham and Orange Counties, or name us as a beneficiary of an annuity.

Real Estate

You may make a gift of real estate to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Durham and Orange Counties. The property is assessed at its full market value at the time it is given to the charity, and tax deductions are calculated based on property and interest value formulas.

Retirement Plans

You may designate the Boys & Girls Clubs of Durham and Orange Counties as the final beneficiary of a company pension or profit-sharing plan of a private fund (for example, an IRA or Keough), saving your estate both income and estate taxes.

Life Income Funds

It may be possible to plan a substantial gift to take effect later while receiving periodic payments of income from the assets that will eventually come to the Club. Charitable remainder trusts and pooled income funds are examples of these planned gifts.

These types of gifts can be made during your lifetime or planned for in your will. Due to the complexity of these giving mechanisms, we recommend consulting an attorney or qualified estate planner to determine the approach that best meets your needs and intent. Call Jerome Levisy, our Executive Director, at (919) 687-4517, ext. 20 to talk about making such a gift.

Sponsorship

Organizations and corporations are vital to the success of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Durham and Orange Counties. Without the very generous, continuous support of corporations and organizations, we would not be able to fund our ongoing programs that are so important to realizing our ultimate dream: helping youth in Durham and Orange Counties realize their full potential as responsible and caring citizens.

In addition to these traditional ways of giving, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Durham and Orange Counties works with corporations in a variety of other sponsorship formats. These may take the form of providing summer camp scholarships, sponsor a special event,  or fund a targeted campaign initiative. We encourage you to talk further with us about possibilities your company might have in mind for involvement. Remember, corporate support not only provides critical financial support for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Durham and Orange Counties programs. It also provides your company with a unique opportunity for widespread visibility to a market audience – and it is an investment in your future.
