Endowed Gifts

Your Gift For the Future.

An endowment gift to the Arlington-Mansfield Area YMCA today provides a brighter picture for our future. When you make a donation to an endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits. 

Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs at the Arlington-Mansfield Area YMCA. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support. 

To submit your pledge form or if you have questions, please contact our Community Engagement department.

Since 1958, in timely and innovative ways, the Arlington-Mansfield Area YMCA has served our community, addressing our area’s most pressing needs. The YMCA continues to impact lives, and with your help, the YMCA always will.

When contemplating the pathway that will lead to your personal legacy, you can feel confident that a contribution to the YMCA will be a gift of a lifetime – building stronger communities today and in the future.

A gift to the YMCA’s Endowment Fund is an investment in the beliefs that guide us

The YMCA invites you to make a gift of a lifetime that benefits both you and the YMCA.

Outright Gifts

Immediate gifts of cash, appreciated securities, real or tangible property are welcome additions to the YMCA Endowment Foundation.

Wills and Revocable Living Trusts

A gift to the YMCA by will or living trust permits you to retain all your assets during your life. Designations may be for a percentage of your estate, a specified amount or for the residue of your estate.

Charitable Trusts

Charitable trusts can provide life income to you and/or a loved one. After your lifetime(s), the trust principal passes to the YMCA Endowment. You may name other charities as principal recipients as well.

Life Insurance

When the added protection of an insurance  policy is no longer needed, transferring the policy’s ownership to the YMCA can result in tax benefits for you and a generous gift to the YMCA.

Charitable Lead Trusts

If you desire to retain ownership of the trust principal to meet future financial goals for your family, but have ample income now, a charitable lead trust directs income from the trust to the YMCA Endowment Foundation for the specified terms of the trust. After that period of time, the principal returns to you or your designee.

Pooled Income Fund

A contribution to the YMCA’s Pooled Income Fund can accomplish the same preservation of life income to you and/or a loved one, without the expense of maintaining a separate trust, by pooling assets with other donors.
