The best way to predict the future is to create it. At the Boys & Girls Club of Muncie (BGCM), we are creating a new and brighter future for thousands of young people. BGCM is a comprehensive youth service organization operating in Muncie, IN. We empower school-aged children in grades K-12 to reach their full potential through a program of youth development that emphasizes career and academic preparedness, healthy lifestyles and character and good citizenship.

MEMBERSHIPS

We are part of a national organization, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, which operates more than 4,400 Clubs worldwide and impacts more than 4 million young people. For 18 years, the Chronicle of Philanthropy has ranked the Boys & Girls Clubs of America as #1 among youth serving organizations.

Never in our community’s history have kids needed the Club more.  Consider these statistics:

  • Delaware County has the highest poverty rate of all counties in Indiana.
  • More than 31 percent of children live in poverty in Delaware County.
  • It costs $500 each year to provide our life-impacting services to a child.

The Boys & Girls Club of Muncie, we’re changing these statistics and the future for children.

While they are at the Club, our members are provided with a broad range of activities and services including homework help, mentoring, sports and recreation programs, arts programs, access to computer technology, service opportunities and leadership clubs. Each Club member is served a hot, healthy, and nutritious meal every day and, based on the statistics above we know that without this meal, many would go hungry.

Our programs work. Here are some results:

  • Last year, we served more than 22,000 meals to Club members.
  • Through PowerHour, more than 18,000 hours were dedicated to homework and academic success improving reading and math scores.
  • Of our active membership, almost 250 were teenagers who benefited from tutoring and mentoring programs. We also served youth in the community through outreach programs.

DONATE STOCK

Support the Club and save on capital gains taxes.

The gift of an asset, often common stock or mutual fund shares, is a valuable way to make a contribution to a charitable organization and receive tax benefits based on the value of the asset(s). For example, suppose Ted and Alicia had 300 shares of XYZ Corporation that they had purchased at $15 a share some years ago. The current value in today’s market is $36 a share. If they sold the stock in the market, they would have a taxable, long-term capital gains on the difference between their cost and what they would receive from the sale ($36 minus $15 = $21 capital gains per share; 300 shares X $21 = $6,300 in capital gains).

They could sell the stock, pay the tax on the capital gains, and either keep or donate the proceeds. If, instead of selling the stock, Ted and Alicia gave the 300 shares to their charity, they would not incur any capital gains and would be able to deduct the current value (300 shares X $36 = $10,800) as a charitable gift. By donating the stock, the charity receives more than it would receive if Ted and Alicia first sold the stock and then donated the proceeds after deducting the capital gains taxes. Also, Ted and Alicia receive a greater tax deduction by giving the stock directly to the charity and avoiding the capital gains tax.

EMPLOYER MATCHING

Join others in maximizing YOUR gift!

Many companies have programs through which they will “match” the charitable contributions made by their employees. Through corporate gift matching, your employer can multiply your gift to BGCM, making it go further.

Check with your company’s human resources office to see if they offer gift matching. (If they don’t, you may want to ask your company to start one.) If your employer does offer this program, your Human Resources department should provide you with a matching gift form to send to BGCM along with your donation. Complete this form and mail it with your donation to:

Boys & Girls Clubs of Muncie
Attention: Executive Director
Post Office Box 820
Muncie, IN 47308-0820

We will verify receipt of your gift and return the form to your company for matching funds.

Conditions and criteria for gift matching vary by employer. Some companies offer a payroll deduction plan. For more information or if you are not sure if BGCM qualifies for your company’s gift matching program, call us at 765-282-4461 and we’ll be glad to send information about our mission and programs.
