The YMCA of Greater Louisville Heritage Club was established in 1994. The Heritage Club is a special group of people who believe in the mission of the YMCA of Greater Louisville and want to ensure that valuable, life-changing programs and services will be continued for future generations.
Each member of the Club has included the YMCA in his or her estate plan which will build long-range financial stability enabling our YMCA Association to meet its mission now and in the future. Our mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
The YMCA focuses on strengthening the foundations of community by providing programs and services that nurture the potential of youth, promote healthy living and foster a sense of social responsibility.
Becoming a member of the Heritage Club requires a commitment which now, or in the future, will add to the YMCA’s endowment fund. There are a variety of gift programs available to qualify for Heritage Club membership, including:
Contribution of cash, land or securities to the YMCA endowment fund.
Donor names the YMCA as owner, primary or contingent beneficiary of a new or existing insurance policy.
Donor’s will includes a designation to the YMCA for a specified amount, or a percentage of the donor’s estate.
Creating one of several kinds of charitable trusts, annuity trusts, pooled income funds, or life estate gifts to benefit the YMCA Endowment fund.
Gifts and commitments to the YMCA Endowment Fund may be directed to benefit the overall work of the YMCA, or can be designated to support a particular community branch or program.
