Leave a Legacy

Your opportunity to change the life of your family and community.


YMCA of Northern Alberta Foundation has partnered with Will Power, a national movement working to educate Canadians on the power they have to make a difference through their Wills. Keep scrolling to learn more about Will Power and estate planning!

How it works

We can be here for your family and community in the future. But we can't do it without your support.

You can make a lasting impact on your family and community by leaving a gift to YMCA of Northern Alberta Foundation through your estate plans. Legacy gifts are endowed, which means they are invested in perpetuity, with a portion of the investment income used to fund Central and Northern Alberta programs each year.


There are multiple ways you can make a gift through your estate, whether that's by naming the YMCA to receive a gift through your will as a beneficiary of your RRSP or RRIF, donating a life insurance policy, or making a gift using appreciated Publicly Traded Securities.



YMCA of Northern Alberta Foundation is proud to provide a space for you to learn about wills and legacy planning alongside our partner, Will Power. Will Power is a national effort to show Canadians the power they have to do more with their Will. Learn more at willpower.ca.
