Children's Circle

Who Believed in You?

The Children’s Circle program recognizes and honours those who have included BGCBigs in their estate plans with a future gift or have made an outright gift to our Endowment Fund. BGCBigs has been entrusted with serving kids in the community for over 50 years. Your legacy gift and trust in us will allow us to walk alongside these children in their journey for years to come.

We invite you—our friends, donors and volunteers—to join us to become a Children’s Circle member.


Ways to Give

We have a fire in our hearts for supporting all children and their potential. Find out how you can help make a commitment.

There are many combination gift options that can make your giving go farther than a simple gift of cash or property. Your gift will help our organization secure its future and continues to address the most urgent needs of our community. Through Children’s Circle, you will be a community builder and your contribution will be respected and recognized (if you so choose) for years to come.

Gifts in a Will

A family can gift certain personal property or real estate, a specific sum of money or a percentage of estate assets through a will. Sample “will clauses” are available on request.

Retirement Funds

Retirement funds may be the most significant asset for many families. Individuals may name Boys & Girls Clubs Big Brothers Big Sisters as a beneficiary for all or any portion of funds remaining at death.

Life Insurance

When the added protection of an insurance policy is no longer needed, transferring the policy’s ownership can result in tax benefits for you and a generous gift for Boys & Girls Clubs Big Brothers Big Sisters. BGCBigs can also be included as a beneficiary, contingency beneficiary or owner of a new or existing policy.

Direct Gifts of Cash

A gift of cash, or publicly traded securities can be given to the Endowment Fund. You will receive an income tax receipt for your donation.

Personal Benefits of Giving

Donors benefit from planned giving by becoming eligible for tax and estate planning advantages. Donors also benefit from knowing their gift will ensure the continued presence of BGCBigs in our community, helping to build a better tomorrow for our children. Specialists are available to explain each of these gift plans more fully and assist you in meeting your financial needs and desires.
