Ways to Give

When it comes to caring for young people in our community – and to giving – one size does not fit all.

There are many ways to give a gift. When you give to Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Ohio, your gift changes the lives of youths and families who need our support… and yours.

We understand there are many worthy nonprofits that need your attention. We hope we’ve earned your trust and that you’ll partner with us to create brighter futures for every youth who comes to the Club. Here are just a few ways you can help the young people at Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Ohio:

Click here to donate today!

Direct Donation: Give online here, or mail a check made payable to Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Ohio to: PO Box 72090 OPC833, 295 Huntington Circle, Akron, OH 44307

Virtual Toy/Supply Drive: Gather your friends and family to help us purchase toys, games and gifts by asking your network to make monetary donations to our online fundraising page.

Gifts of Assets: Many donors choose to use their existing assets like stocks, IRAs or DAFs to fulfill their philanthropic goals, while also providing tax benefits. Simply provide your administrator with our Federal Tax ID: 34-1856214.

  • Donor-Advised Funds (DAF): A DAF is like a charitable investment account that is set up for the sole purpose of supporting charities. You can contribute cash, stocks, or other assets into the DAF and receive an immediate tax deduction.
  • Stock: When you donate stock held for over one year to BGCNEO, you receive a charitable tax deduction for the full fair market value.
  • IRAs and Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCD): At age 70½ and older, you can give any amount (up to a maximum of $100,000) per year from your IRA directly to BGCNEO without having to pay income taxes on the money. Beginning in the year you turn 73, you can use your gift to satisfy all or part of your required minimum distribution (RMD).

We’re happy to customize your giving in a way that’s most meaningful and convenient for you.

If you have questions about your giving, please reach out to Kim Cole, Director of Individual Giving at .

Thank you for keeping Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Ohio in mind as you consider your philanthropic plans for the year.
