Planned Giving

Planned Giving

Planned gifts are sometimes referred to as “stop-and-think” gifts because they require planning and may require help from your professional advisor. Unlike cash donations, they are typically made from assets in your estate rather than disposable income and come to fruition upon your passing.

There are several ways to make a planned gift:

  • Giving through your will or trust offers a way to support BGCI’s mission for generations while meeting your current financial needs.
  • Income gifts allow you to make a gift and receive income back for you or a loved one. There are several ways to accomplish this tailored to your personal goals.
  • Other creative gift plans provide opportunities to transfer ownership of your home, farm or other treasured asset to ensure your dream of helping Indy youth is met.

The 1893 Legacy Society

In 1893, several individuals joined together to serve Indianapolis youth in need. Their generosity and kindness was the genesis of what we know today as Boys & Girls Clubs of Indianapolis.

The 1893 Legacy Society is open to friends who name Boys & Girls Clubs of Indianapolis in their wills or trusts, establish a charitable gift annuity, or through other types of planned gifts. These gifts serve future generations of Indy youth and help to strengthen the organization for years to come.

We would be gratified and honored to include you as a member of the 1893 Legacy Society.

We welcome the opportunity to have a confidential conversation with you at no obligation. If you would like more information or would like to discuss options, please contact: Avachino Reeves, Director of Marketing & Development, at 317-403-9413 or

If you have already included BGCI in your estate plans, we would appreciate the opportunity to thank you for your generosity and to help make sure your intentions are carried out properly. Please contact us.
