Planned GivingPlanned giving describes irrevocable and revocable lifetime gifts that include charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, gifts of real estate and other major gifts. These gifts vary in complexity and can be arranged to meet the needs of each donor. We are fortunate to have our national organization as a partner in exploring planned gifts that give you the chance to leave a legacy for Cape Cod's children well into the future. Their experienced financial advisors are available to meet with you and your own financial advisor to explain differing options so you can choose a vehicle that's right for you and your family. They bring the resources of a large national organization to the table and put them to work for our kids right here at home.
For more information on charitable gift options and the ability to develop and view a personal color gift illustration based on your own personal financial parameters, please go to the BGCA web site to select a presentation that shows the income and tax benefits for you for various types of planned giving vehicles. You may custom design and view a unitrust, annuity trust, gift annuity, deferred gift annuity, sale and unitrust or gift and sale at this site, as well as read stories from people who have actually improved their family's financial position through planned giving.

Give Our Children A Foundation for the Future Boys & Girls Clubs offers positive alternatives to children who may be surrounded by negative influences, showing them how to live successful and productive lives. Since 1860, Clubs have provided safe havens for young people by offering quality programs and critically important relationships with nurturing and reliable adults.
Boys & Girls Clubs give their members, ages 6 - 18, access to dedicated, trained professionals who can provide guidance in adopting healthy lifestyles and pursuing educational objectives. Most importantly, Boys & Girls Clubs equip young people with the skills they need to resolve conflicts peacefully, improve relationships within every aspect of their day-to-day lives and function as responsible citizens.
Your support through a planned gift will ensure that future generations of our children on Cape Cod will have the opportunity to live successful lives in a safe, positive and caring environment.
