Help Us Provide Great Futures

Making a donation is an easy way to support the Club!  There are many different ways to give; in-kind and monetary donations are accepted and greatly appreciated.

Donations

Your donation supports the youth and families we serve throughout the San Fernando Valley.  Each donation - no matter the amount - is important and provides our members with positive programs, caring staff, and a safe place.  Here are some examples of how donations can be used at our Club:
  • A $24 donation provides 1 child with an annual Club membership.
  • A $50 donation covers the cost of our Young Chefs in Action cooking program.
  • A $100 donation can help offset the purchase of new sports equipment.
  • A $300 donation pays for field trip transportation for members.
We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and therefore all charitable donations made to our Club are tax deductible. 
Donations can also be mailed directly to our Club.  Send gifts via check or money order to:

Boys & Girls Club of San Fernando Valley
Attn: Dianne Downey
11251 Glenoaks Blvd
Pacoima, CA 91601

Employer Matching

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 the Boys & Girls Club of San Fernando Valley, making it go further.  Check with your company's Human Resources office to see if they offer gift matching.  If your employer does offer this program, your Human Resources department should provide you with a matching gift form to send to our Club along with your donation. 

Support Our Capital Campaign

We are currently raising funds to make improvements to our campus and expand our facility.  This expansion will nearly double our existing building's square footage, which will allow us to offer more programs to more members and families, and accommodate more community events.  If you would like to support our Capital Campaign, please contact Nicole Chase at nicole.chase@bgcsfv.org or 818-896-5261.

Planned Giving

Your support through a planned gift will ensure that future generations of our children will have the opportunity to live successful lives in a safe, positive, and caring environment.  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 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.
