Foundation & Planned Giving

Boys & 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.
