The Alameda Boys & Girls Club relies on contributions from people like you to provide the children in our community with direct services when they need it most. Did you know that over 40% of our members come from single-parent households and may not have adult supervision at home after school? And over 65% of our members come from economically disadvantaged families. Unsupervised kids are at greater risk of getting into trouble—in fact, youth-related crime triples between 3:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. each weekday.
That’s where we come in. Please help us continue to provide a positive place for Alameda children to go after school and during summers. Your contribution can help our young people grow into productive, caring and responsible citizens of our community.
A Promise to a Kid: You can leave a planned gift to the Alameda Boys & Girls Club Foundation’s Kid For Life Endowment Fund.
Your commitment to join our Kid for Life program would be a positive step in ensuring that future generations will have access to life changing programs that will enable them to become contributing members of our society.
There are several types of gifts one can make to the fund including a Charitable Gift Annuity, Will or Codicil Bequest, Charitable Remainder Trust, Charitable Lead Trust, Life Insurance, Retirement Assets, Appreciated Stock or Gift of Residence.

The gift of an asset, often common stock or mutual fund shares, is a valuable way to make a contribution to a charitable organization and receive tax benefits based on the value of the asset(s). For example, suppose Ted and Alicia had 300 shares of XYZ Corporation that they had purchased at $15 a share some years ago. The current value in today’s market is $36 a share. If they sold the stock in the market, they would have a taxable, long-term capital gains on the difference between their cost and what they would receive from the sale ($36 minus $15 = $21 capital gains per share; 300 shares X $21 = $6,300 in capital gains). They could sell the stock, pay the tax on the capital gains, and either keep or donate the proceeds. If, instead of selling the stock, Ted and Alicia gave the 300 shares to their charity, they would not incur any capital gains and would be able to deduct the current value (300 shares X $36 = $10,800) as a charitable gift. By donating the stock, the charity receives more than it would receive if Ted and Alicia first sold the stock and then donated the proceeds after deducting the capital gains taxes. Also, Ted and Alicia receive a greater tax deduction by giving the stock directly to the charity and avoiding the capital gains tax.
If you have a vehicle or boat that is no longer in use, consider donating it to benefit the Alameda Boys & Girls Club. You’ll have more room in your garage — and you can claim a tax deduction for your contribution.
All donations can be processed through Auction City.
