Making a Lasting Difference through a Legacy Gift

One of our greatest aspirations in life is to leave a mark – to make a difference. A Legacy Gift to the YMCA supports an Endowment that ensures that YMCA programs and services continue to address the most urgent needs in our community, now and in the future.

Planned giving through a Legacy gift to the YMCA can be made in a variety of ways: Bequests

  • Outright Gifts
  • Life Insurance Policies
  • Tribute Gifts
  • Charitable Gift Annuities
  • Residual Interest Gifts

Gifts to endowment funds are not spent. They are invested in perpetuity, and a portion of the investment income is used to fund YMCA programs each year. Before deciding on a Legacy Gift, we urge you to talk to your family, your financial advisor and your YMCA to ensure you are choosing an Endowment that is right for you.
