Thank you for thinking of us.
Calgary is a dynamic place to live and care, and we appreciate you considering our organization for your charitable contribution. Together, Calgary is stronger and with your contribution, our kids have a real chance at becoming successful adults.
We recognize our community is made up of many different types of people and no one gift suits them all. That is why we have multiple giving options and ask our community to choose the one that makes the most sense to them. If you’re not sure about the benefits of each gift type, please contact us and one of our giving advisors would be happy to walk you through the different methods and their benefits.
A generous one-time gift helps us provide essential programs and services that benefit Calgary children and youth.
Many Calgarians do the mad dash in December to take advantage of tax-deductible giving options before the end of the year. It can be a scramble, trying to decide which charity to give to, how much and how often. Alleviate the pressure by choosing to donate monthly. This option is a scheduled financial donation given to Boys & Girls Clubs of Calgary — without necessarily increasing how much you would normally give at the end of the year.
Host a Fundraising Event
Host a fundraising event with Boys & Girls Clubs of Calgary. Together we can make a difference for Calgary’s vulnerable youth and families.
Gift an Item of Value
Valuable non-cash gifts are gladly accepted. We also accept in-kind gifts of supplies and materials for our 21 facilities operating over 40 programs across Calgary.
Gift of Securities
Publicly traded securities (eg. shares, bonds, mutual funds) can be donated as an alternative to cash. These gifts are exempt from any capital gains tax with the tax receipt reflecting the full market value of the gift on the day of transfer.
Create a Lasting Memory
Give in honour or memory of a loved one. By donating in tribute, you can create a lasting remembrance of a special person who has touched yours or someone else’s life. Making a donation in memory of or in tribute to a friend or family member is a meaningful way to let others know you care.
Create a Legacy
You will create a legacy when you remember Boys & Girls Clubs of Calgary in your will or through your life insurance provider. By joining Boys & Girls Clubs of Calgary’s “Legacy” you will know that you are helping create an enduring endowment of hope while also enjoying possible tax benefits during your lifetime by choosing to leave a bequest. You simply need to discuss this option with your lawyer, while supplying Boys & Girls Clubs of Calgary’s charitable tax number (# 10680 4669 RR0001).
