Support The Club
That the BCBGC receives no funding from Boys & Girls Club of America? It's true! While we receive a lot of educational and administrative support from the Boys & Girls Club of America, the BCBGC programming is dependent on the BCBGC to fund.
Open the Door to Great Futures
Without the help of program partners, sponsors and other donors, the good works of The Black Canyon Boys & Girls Club would not be possible. We rely on the financial and volunteer support of the entire community to keep our life improvement programs and services available to the families that depend on us. Our Club is proud to say that with the help from many individuals, businesses, the annual Montrose Wine & Food Festival, the annual Crab Crab, community service groups, grants from private foundations, and the State of Colorado that we have been able to keep our membership cost affordable throughout our history. The current fee is $100 for the school year and $80 per each four week summer session.
The future starts with our community’s young people - and with you! Working together, we will give our youth and our community a sense of hope, a sense of opportunity, and a sense that anything is possible. We welcome your support in the form of time, treasury and talent. Please contact one of our Board Members or our Executive Director, Bud Taylor, to discuss in detail your thoughts and ideas on how you and/or your family, company or foundation would like to help our organization. Gift are accepted in the form of cash, property and secured credit card processing.

Become a Great Futures Partner by designating your gift to a specific program or area of interest at the Club that matches your wishes on how you’d like to help build Great Futures. Meet with a Board Member and the Executive Director to discuss your thoughts and to outline your impact plan. To learn more, contact Executive Director Bud Taylor at email@example.com or (970) 249-5168. Designated and restricted gifts are accepted on a one time, annual and quarterly basis and can be made by check, credit card, or stock gifts.
Be a Great Futures Partner in perpetuity by ensuring that the future needs of our youth are met by including the Black Canyon Boys & Girls Clubs in your long-term philanthropic plans. An accumulation of planned gifts would provide our Club with financial security ensuring that we would be able to continue to provide vital programs and guidance for the children of Montrose County for decades and beyond. This approach to giving may include immediate gifts to the Club in the form of liquid assets or those assets that can be made liquid in a relatively short time period such as cash, stocks, IRA’s, real estate and art. Once converted to cash, these funds would be placed under the restrictions of an endowment fund that focuses on both growth and income. Additionally, a formal planning process can be completed with your attorney and/or C.P.A. to establish a gift that transfers at a future date involving real estate, a business, a charitable gift annuity, a trust arrangement, a life insurance policy or other assets that you’d like to transfer to the Club in the future. If you’d like to learn more about our endowment program or if you have already designated the Black Canyon Boys & Girls Club to be the recipient of any such gifts, please contact Bud Taylor, Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org or (970) 249-5168.
The Heritage Society
The Heritage Club is a national deferred giving society used to recognize individuals who have included a Boys & Girls Club in their estate plans through a will, beneficiary designation or other deferred giving technique. Marketing materials, pins, plaques and a national Heritage Club annual report are available through BGCA. Clubs that already have a recognition society are encouraged to identify this group as their “founding members” of The Heritage Club so that they can take full advantage of the national recognition available to their donors.
