Join The Club

Volunteering at BGC helped connect me to our community in a different way. It’s like becoming part of a new, huge, extended family. It was really inspiring to see how hard people work there (adults and kids). It’s all heart.

Pledges

You can increase the value of your gift to the Club by pledging a larger amount to be paid over a period of time, up to five years.

Memorial and Honorary Gifts

Honorary and memorial gifts are important sources of support for the Boys and Girls Club of Northern Westchester. At the time of the gift, a letter is sent to the individual or family of the honoree, notifying them of the donor’s generosity.

Employer Matching Gifts

Many companies have programs through which they will “match” the charitable contributions made by their employees. If your employer offers this program, your Human Resources department should provide you with a matching gift form to send to the Boys & Girls Club of Northern Westchester along with your donation. Many companies use online forms and provide a password for gift verification. Please alert us to an online application, or mail the matching gift form with your donation to our Mt. Kisco location. We will verify receipt of your gift and return the form to your company for matching funds.
