New online memorials

The Club is proud to announce a new wrinkle to its Memorial Gifts program.


In the past, supporters have asked friends and loved ones to please make a memorial gift to Boys & Girls Club of Rockford in lieu of flowers to honor someone close to them upon their death. It was the Club's practice to accept those charitable gifts, issue a gift acceptance letter, and send the family of the deceased a condolence letter with a list of those who made a donation (so they may send a handwritten thank you note if they wanted to do so).


After some consideration, we recognize this isn't just a normal charitable contribution. The Club is being entrusted with the loving memory of someone special in addition to the preservation of their legacy.


With this in mind, we've launched a new "Memorial & Tribute Gifts" webpage on the Club's website. This is where all of these special type of donations will be honored, and people's legacies can be preserved.
