Gregor Hodgson, president of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Whatcom County Foundation, has announced a distribution of $49,621 to the five Boys & Girls Clubs in Whatcom County. Clubs in Bellingham, Ferndale, Blaine, Lynden and Lummi Island will share in the funding.
The foundation is a separate 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation founded in 2002. A nine-member board of directors governs the foundation and oversees the investments and the third party manager.
Distributed funds go directly into the clubs’ unrestricted operating budgets, keeping them open and programs running for more than 5,000 children and teens in annual membership.
The Foundation is organized to accept simple bequests, insurance or pension beneficiaries, real property, and other fiscal vehicles including trusts and estate plans.
