A legacy that lives on forever!

The YMCA Heritage Club recognizes and honours those who have supported the YMCA Endowment Fund with a current gift of $10,000 or more and have included the YMCA in their estate plans in one or more of the following ways:

  • Naming the YMCA to receive a bequest through their will

  • Donating a life insurance policy to YMCA

  • Naming the YMCA as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, RRSP or RIF

  • Creating a Charitable Trust to benefit the YMCA

Heritage Club members plan their gifts to create endowment funds at either The Edmonton YMCA Foundation or the Edmonton Community Foundation.

Gifts to endowment funds are not spent. They are invested in perpetuity, and only a portion of the investment income is used to fund YMCA programs each year.

One of our greatest aspirations in life is to leave a mark – to make a difference. Through your care and commitment, you can help ensure that the YMCA has a secure future and the YMCA programs continue to address the most urgent needs in our community. Through The Edmonton YMCA Foundation's Heritage Club, you'll be a community builder and your contribution will be respected and recognized for years to come.

Upon making your gift, you become a member of the Edmonton YMCA Heritage Club. We will make a point of informing you annually about the good work made possible by your generous contribution.

Thank you to our event sponsor:

    Edmonton YMCA Foundation

    The Edmonton YMCA Foundation was formed on January 4, 1991 for the purpose of holding and investing endowment funds for the YMCA, and for investing earnings on those funds in YMCA programs, services and facilities. The Foundation supports current YMCA programs and is creating a legacy to ensure that the Y will continue to build strong kids, strong families and strong communities for generations to come.
