What is a planned gift?

Your planned gift gives future generations the programs, resources and guidance they need to help them achieve academic success, make healthy life choices, and develop the skills they need to reach their full potential.

Endowment Funds:

Establishing a legacy

Club Kids

The Club’s endowment funds are permanent charitable fund from which the Club draws income every year. The endowment funds provide operational flexibility and stability, allowing the Club to focus on emerging needs.

Generally, unrestricted gifts to our endowment are added to the general endowment fund. Larger gifts may be restricted by agreement between the donor and the Club for specific, ongoing use, such as one of our core program areas, building maintenance or scholarships, and may be named to honor the donor, his or her family, or another worthy honoree. Boys & Girls Club of South Alabama partners with the Community Foundation of South Alabama to administer the endowment funds.

Currently, the Boys & Girls Club of South Alabama has two established endowment funds in which donors are able to invest funds.
