Ways to Give
Together, we can equip our students with the tools they need to succeed in school, lead healthy lives, and embrace their role as agents of change. Make an impact anyway you choose.
There are more ways to give! You can make an impact by giving through stock gifts, matching gifts, workplace giving campaigns, planned giving, becoming a sponsor, monthly giving, or in-kind gifts. The ways to make an impact are endless!
Your monthly gift has a direct and immediate impact and will provide long-term sustainability of our program. It lets YOU spread your generosity throughout the year and make an ongoing commitment to B.O.O.K Academy youth.

Workplace Giving and Matching Gifts
Many companies have programs in place to help their employees facilitate their gift. You can designate B.O.O.K Academy as the beneficiary of your contribution through an automatic payroll deduction or through your local United Way workplace campaign.
Through your company’s Matching Gift Program, any gift you pledge to B.O.O.K Academy will be matched equally by your employer, doubling your gift’s impact. Contact your company’s human resources, community relations, publicity or marketing department for more information.
Give a Gift of Stock
Do you own stock that increased in value since its purchase or have clients who do? If you or your clients have owned the stock for at least one year, there is a unique opportunity for philanthropy.
When someone donates securities to B.O.O.K Academy, they receive the same income tax savings (if they itemize) as if they wrote a check directly, but with the added benefit of eliminating capital gains tax on the transfer.
Making a gift of securities to support our mission is as easy as instructing a broker to transfer the shares to B.O.O.K Academy. Click here for Stock Donation Form.
B.O.O.K Academy encourages you to think about your legacy and consider including our organization as a beneficiary in your estate. Ask your tax professional about the advantages you may incur through charitable remainder trusts, bequests, retirement plans, real property, stocks and bonds, insurance and residence as a gift to our endowment fund.
By planning ahead to assure your heirs the best possible tax advantages, you might discover an opportunity to make a meaningful difference in the lives of our young people today while ensuring that we continue to meet the needs of our students for generations to come.

In-kind contributions of equipment, supplies, product, services, tickets to museums, performances and sporting events, and other resources are yet another way to support B.O.O.K Academy. Every fall, critical items our students need include new school supplies. Support our Holiday Gift Drive by donating a new, unwrapped gift, bike and/or gift-cards for boys and girls ages 6-18. In-kind services also include administrative and IT support, consulting, facilities maintenance and upgrades.
Through event sponsorships and program underwriting, your company can enhance its visibility by putting your company’s name in front of our community. Sponsor our annual Golf Classic or Gala and express your company’s commitment to community by underwriting one of our programs.
