"We make a living by what we get. But we make a life by what we give." - Winston Churchill
With over 100 different programs and activities, and 200,000+ yearly participants, the YMCA has the programs, presence, and partnerships to promise and deliver lasting personal and social change.
With the YMCA Future Fund, we will be able to provide a secure, stable foundation upon which the YMCA can build its future. For over 50 years, the YMCA has served as a community hub where people can gather to make new friends, share interests, discuss pressing issues, and create lasting change. Gift to the Future Fund are invested, allowing the YMCA to use interest to support critical programs that require contributions to survive. We invite you to consider the Future Fund to help your YMCA to be better prepared for the future.
By including the YMCA in your planned giving, you can be confident that your gift will be used to enable the YMCA to continue to serve children, families, and individuals of all ages for years to come. Donors are eligible for tax and estate planning advantages. Future Fund contributions are invested, protecting the pricipal, while the investment income is used to support YMCA programming and maintain upgrading the facilities.
The YMCA takes seriously the trust our donors place in us. How a particular donor chooses to make a gift varies; whether an immediate or planned gift, all that is necessary is a commitment to the YMCA's Endowment. To ensure your gift supports your estate and financial needs, the YMCA encourages donors to discuss contributions with their family, legal and/or financial advisors.
