Planned Giving

As a service for our friends and supporters, we have added this helpful information about planned giving options.

Your charitable gift will provide vital support for our organization as well as immediate or deferred tax benefits for you and your family. Every dollar invested in the Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Clubs returns $9.60 in economic benefits to individuals and society, so your contribution has the potential to influence the well-being of others far into the future.

What are the benefits of making a bequest?

  1. You leave a lasting legacy to be remembered
  2. You lessen the burden of taxes on your family
  3. You may receive estate tax savings

How do I make a bequest?

A bequest is one of the easiest gifts to make. With the help of an advisor, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift be made to family, friends or the Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club as part of your estate plan.


What are my options?
A bequest can be made in several ways:

  1. You can gift a specific dollar amount or asset
  2. You can gift a percentage of your estate
  3. You can gift from the balance or residue of your estate
  4. You can make a beneficiary designation of certain asset

We are pleased to announce that we now can offer you a Charitable Gift Annuity. If you are not familiar with this type of gift option please contact us and we would be happy to send you information.
