Foundation & Planned Giving
Boys and Girls Clubs of San Dieguito Foundation was established in 1977 and is an independent entity managed by 19 Trustees. The Foundation is a tax-deductible receptacle for donations aimed at long-range facilities planning, as well as being a backup for existing operations. The Foundation also acts as a custodian for major grants and bequests in support of specific BGC San Dieguito programs and activities, and will administer them at its own cost. Contributions arrive through direct gifts (cash, land, stocks, insurance and mortgages) and through delayed gifting via bequests and charitable trusts. Assets today are approximately $1.4 million, with approximately $12 million in deferred gifts. The Foundation supports the operating Club by:
- Providing non-interest-bearing loans to assist the operating Club’s cash flow
- Undertaking studies and demographic surveys to project future needs
- Seeking land to acquire for new Club facilities
- Making grants for off-budget items such as capital grants and special projects
- Providing scholarships to needy and deserving youth
The Heritage Club is comprised of men and women who have given gifts to the Foundation using any of the following methods:
- An outright gift to the BGC San Dieguito Foundation of money, securities, property or other marketable assets
- Creation of a unitrust, annuity trust, pooled income fund, short-term trust or life estate program
- Naming the BGC San Dieguito Foundation as the eventual recipient of life insurance
- Naming the BGC San Dieguito Foundation to receive a bequest in one’s will
