Support Us

Philanthropy is essential to sustaining the high quality of programs and services provided by BAYC. Below you'll find a few ways you can make a gift to the agency:

Donate online
The easiest and most immediate way to show your support for BAYC is by making a gift online
through this Web site.

Honor/Memorial gifts
You may make a donation to BAYC in honor of or in memory of a family member or friend. Our online giving form also has a section where you can designate your gift in honor, or in memory, of a special person. BAYC will send a card to your designee to inform them of your contribution.

Matching gifts
Many companies will match employees’ contributions to BAYC. Some companies choose to match gifts on a dollar-for-dollar basis; others will double or even triple employee contributions. Please obtain a matching gift form from your company’s Human Resources department, complete it, and send it, along with your gift, to the the Development Office. We will confirm receipt of your gift and return the form to your company to request the match.

United Way
You can increase the impact of your support for vulnerable children and youth by designating BAYC as a beneficiary of all or part of your United Way gift. To designate BAYC, specify the agency’s name and address on your United Way pledge card.

You may realize significant tax benefits by making a sizable gift of appreciated stock, bonds or mutual fund shares to BAYC. Capital gains on the amount of the appreciation are avoided, and you receive a tax deduction for a securities’ full market value at the time of the transfer. To make a gift of marketable securities, please call our Development Office at (415) 457-3200 ext. 118 for transfer instructions.

Planned gifts
Planned gifts enable many donors to make a more substantial gift to BAYC. Planned gifts can range from a simple charitable bequest in your will or living trust to more complex instruments like a charitable trust. Donors receive tax benefits and the opportunity to enhance your own financial situation while making a lasting contribution to BAYC.
