Yes, I want to change lives!

Your investment in Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Ohio can change lives.

BGCNEO provides safe, fun places for kids to go after school and over the summer. At our Clubs, caring adult mentors help kids reach their full potential by focusing on academic success, healthy lifestyles and good character, as well as by offering arts, sports and career readiness programs.

In a Harris Survey of our alumni, 54% said the Club, and its programs, “saved their lives.”

By investing in Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Ohio today, you are making a life-altering impact on Northeast Ohio’s kids and a crucial commitment to the future of our community.

Donate today to help get more kids on the road to a greater future.

Donate Today

Here are ways you can support our young people:

Make a 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.

Become a recurring donor: You can sign up for recurring giving here. With automatic donations from your credit card or checking account, your recurring gift is an easy and convenient way to ensure that there is year-round funding available to support our programs. While most donors choose to give monthly, there are annual, quarterly and semi-annual options available as well.

Give existing assets: Many donors choose to use their existing assets like stocks, IRAs or donor-advised funds 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: Donating appreciated securities, including stocks or bonds, is an easy and tax-effective way for you to make a gift to our organization. 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).

Double your impact: After donating, check to see if your employer will match your gift by clicking here. You can search for your employer, review matching gift program guidelines, and, in many cases, access the matching gift form directly.

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 contact Director of Individual Giving Kim Cole at
