When you give to the Y, 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. The Y is a reliable, professionally managed organization guided by four core values: caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. Led by local volunteers, 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. It is 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 some of the assets they have accumulated to the Y’s permanent endowment fund. Donors can direct that their gifts support the overall work of that Y (which allows the board of directors to determine where funds are needed most) or designate them to support an area of major focus that will remain integral to the Y and the community it serves for future generations.
Individuals who have made a meaningful gift to the YMCA endowment fund are recognized for their generosity and become members of the Heritage Club.
