Your planned gift is for the next generation, a catalyst in perpetuating the work of the YMCA to make our community a safe and healthy place for children, families, teens and adults to live.
You may leave a lasting legacy in the following ways:
Out right Gifts - Contributing cash, securities or real estate to the YMCA's endowment fund.
Bequest - Designating a gift to the YMCA for a specific amount, a percentage, or a remainder of your estate.
Beneficiary Designations - Naming the YMCA as owner or primary or contingent beneficiary or contingent beneficiary of a new or existing insurance policy, IRA, pension plan, or bank account.
Life Income Gift - Making a gift that allows you or your beneficiary to receive money now, with a future gift to the YMCA's endowment fund through a charitable trust or charitable gift annuity.
Permanent Named Funds - Within the endowment fund is a special distinction for gifts totaling $10,000 or more. Memorialized by name, this recognition honors the outstanding commitment of the donor while honoring them, their family and their descendants of their legacy.
