Planned giving offers donors the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy in their communities while potentially enjoying tax benefits and ensuring their assets are distributed according to their wishes. For the YMCA, these gifts provide long-term financial stability and support for our programs and services.

Additional Donor Resources

The YMCA seeks to be an organization that is trusted by our donors and partners, operating with integrity and transparency. We follow the Donor Bill of Rights, developed by Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), and the Giving Institute: Leading Consultants to Non-Profits. 

While we appreciate generosity in all its forms, the YMCA does reserve the right to decline donations that do not align with our mission and values, or will cause undue burden to accept. Our Gift Acceptance Policy identifies the various methods of donating, our policies for accepting said gifts and any restrictions or conflicts of interest that may arise.
