There is no other nonprofit quite like the Y. In partnering with the Y, you can feel confident your contribution is making a meaningful and lasting investment to carry on your charitable wishes into the future. For over 165 years the YMCA has provided life-changing experiences for countless children and adults to positively impact our community and to create future leaders. We invite you to invest in this extraordinary cause and consider the legacy you can leave for future generations.

Gifts to our Endowment Fund are invested with a portion of the interest income used to support projects and programs outside the general operations budget, including camper financial assistance and long-term facility improvements. The principal remains intact to grow your investment over the years. Your gift continues your charitable wishes long into the future.

You Have Options

You are probably familiar with outright gifts, such as cash or a check, which you make today and we can use right away. But sometimes an immediate gift isn’t the best option, especially if you feel unsure about giving up assets today that you and your loved ones might need in the future.

A planned gift is the perfect solution to this problem. There are many types of planned gifts, and each offers unique advantages. Some planned gifts are revocable – a gift in your will or living trust, for example – so you can change your mind at any time. They can also be irrevocable – just as outright gifts are – so that you benefit from an immediate income tax deduction.

  • Outright Cash Gift
  • Will Bequests
  • Living Trust Bequests
  • Life Insurance Beneficiary
  • Retirement Fund Beneficiary
  • Charitable Gift Annuities
  • Gifts of Real Estate
  • POD and TOD Designations
  • Charitable Trusts

The key feature of planned gifts like these is that they provide important benefits to you as well as to the Gateway Region YMCA.
