When you give to the YMCA, your gift will have a meaningful, enduring impact, right in your own neighborhood. In a world that changes so rapidly, the Y has been at the heart of communities for generations. Led by local volunteer board of directors, the Y is in touch with our community’s changing needs. A healthy Y, capable of making a significant impact in the community is a gift we have received from prior generations and a gift we should pass along, in a stronger position, to future generations. Many friends of the Y choose to help extend their values and the Y’s influence beyond their own lifetimes by gifting assets to the Y’s permanent endowment fund. Donors can direct that their gifts to support the overall work of the Y, which allows the board of directors to determine where funds are most needed, or designate funds to a specific area of focus that will remain integral to the Y and the community for generations to come.
At the Y, we understand that there are various gift plans that friends of the YMCA employ to meet personal, family, tax, estate and charitable planning objectives. The YMCA welcomes the opportunity to confidentially discuss one or more of these options with you. The YMCA has both attorneys and financial advisers who jointly oversee the Y endowments with the board of directors. They are available to work with your estate or financial planner as needed.
For more information on how you can make a lasting, positive impact at the YMCA, contact YMCA Executive Director, Hugh Kocab at firstname.lastname@example.org or any YMCA Board of Directors member.
