Ways to Give Back
Giving Back, in Many Ways
Every day, the Y gives our communities the support it needs to learn, grow and thrive. From advocacy to water safety, disease prevention to athletics, affordable housing to child care… everything the Y does helps strengthen our neighborhoods and the people who live there. Your gift helps the Y deliver lasting personal and social change.
The Y’s Annual Campaign is strengthening our community, one life at a time! We are always for youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. At the Y, we are changing lives one at a time. We believe everyone belongs, and we believe in potential. When we work as one, we build a stronger community. Financial assistance keeps the Y available for kids, families and individuals who need us most. Every day, we work to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. The Y. For A Better You. For A Better Community. For A Better Us.
At the Y we believe that every child should start the school year ready to excel. We believe that success starts from day one and we know our community can come together to help all of the children in our communites to succeed.

YMCA Heritage Society
The Heritage Society is a special group of people who believe in the purpose and values of the YMCA. We invite you to consider becoming a member by including the YMCA Endowment Fund in your estate plan through a bequest, life insurance, trust, or outright gift. A gift to the Endowment Fund is an investment in the guiding beliefs of the YMCA. By including the YMCA in your planned giving, you can be confident that your gift will be used to enable the YMCA to continue to serve children, families and individuals of all ages for years to come. Donors are also eligible for tax and estate planning advantages. Endowment fund contributions are invested, protecting the principal, while the investment income is used to support YMCA programming and maintain and upgrade Y facilities.
How to Make Your Endowment Gift
There are several ways to include the YMCA in your planned giving:
- Name the YMCA of Greensboro in your will
- Establish a charitable trust with the YMCA of Greensboro as a beneficiary
- Make a direct gift of cash, assets or property
- Name the YMCA of Greensboro as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement fund
