Planned Giving

Make a sustainable impact

Making a planned gift is one of the best ways to support Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington (BGCGW). Planned gifts allow donors to make a significant impact on the lives of young people over an extended period of time while taking advantage of many benefits, which may:

  • Fulfill your charitable goals
  • Reduce your taxes
  • Increase your income
  • Converse your family’s wealth
  • Be designated to reflect your special interests


Planned gifts can be made in one of many ways:

Appreciated Securities—the IRS allows you one of its most significant tax breaks for gifts of appreciate securities.

Real Estate—make a gift through a transfer of residential, commercial, or undeveloped real estate

Will or Living Trust—give without effecting your cash flow during your lifetime

Retirement Plans—your retirement plan may be worth more when donated

Life Insurance—create a significant endowment without dipping into your capital assets

Charitable Gift Annuities—receive a fixed payout and significant tax benefits

Charitable Lead Trusts—freeze the taxable value of your appreciating assets by using them to make gifts today and pass them to family members later

Charitable Remainder Trusts—combine a charitable gift with a predictable fixed-income payout to meet your financial needs


1886 Society

Donors who make a planned gift of any kind will be recognized as members of the 1886 Society, named after the founding year of BGCGW.

If you are interested in any of our Planned Giving options, we will be pleased to work with you and your advisors to develop a planned gift that best suits your particular needs. For additional information or assistance, please contact the Development Office at 202-540-2300.
