Deciding who you want to receive your assets and possessions after your lifetime is an extremely important decision and one that we all will face sometime. In addition to family members, we often want to share what we have accumulated with other organizations such as our church, college, and other non-profit organizations.
The Denver Area Council, Boy Scouts of America has an active program of promoting and receiving estate gifts and it is an important part of our fundraising program. We encourage you to include us in your will, codicil, or life insurance policy, and to donate securities, IRA accounts, or other assets that would help secure future programs for our Scouting youth.
These gifts will be placed in our permanent endowment fund and the annual earnings provide support for our ongoing activities, camp development and maintenance, along with other educational opportunities that help to develop character, values and leadership qualities so important to our leaders of tomorrow.
Whatever method you choose in making a planned gift to the Denver Area Council, there are often tax benefits for making a gift. Please consult your attorney, financial advisor, or tax consultant for information regarding your particular situation.
We also have a formal recognition program for donors making gift commitments to our Council. Please contact us regarding the various levels as well as our annual recognition event. For more information on how you can make a meaningful gift arrangement and with no obligation, please contact:
