In-kind giving is a non-cash donation that can be made to the Club of any product or good. Examples of in-kind giving include, but are not limited to, arts & crafts supplies, games, books, sporting equipment, etc.

In-kind donations are tax-deductible at the depreciated value of the donation and help the Club to free up money usually spent on these goods and re-channel it into programming for our kids.

We respectfully request that all donations, if previously used, be clean and in proper working order.
