Planned Giving Support

We invite you to become a member of the Heritage Club, a dedicated group of individuals and families who have made a contribution to the endowment or provided for the Y in their estate plans.

The YMCA is a professionally managed organization, guided by volunteers and founded on four core values: caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. Since 1844, the Y has responded to the changing needs in our communities. When you give to the Y, your gift will have a meaningful, enduring impact right in your own neighborhood and at your own Y branch. The longevity of the organization and the significant impact made in individual's lives is possible only through gifts from prior generations. To continue this amazing work, we rely on future gifts.
