Donate to the YMCA of Metro North

Support the Y’s Cause

Every day, the YMCA of Metro North gives our communities the support they need to learn, grow, and thrive. From healthy living to exercise, teen leadership to volunteerism, swim lessons to gymnastics classes, everything we do helps strengthen our neighborhoods and the people who live here.

But keeping our neighborhoods great is a full-time job. Every day, our communities face new challenges that create a greater need for the work we do. The Annual Fund provides financial assistance to our community members most in need. It ensures that the Y can be there for those who need us most, when they need us most, regardless of their ability to pay. Every dollar raised can help change the course of someone’s life.

Planned or Deferred Gifts

Life Insurance: When new or existing policies name the Y as owner or beneficiary of your policy, all subsequent premium payments become tax-deductible contributions. Please notify us once you have named the YMCA of Metro North on your life insurance policy.

Charitable Remainder Annuity Trusts & Unitrusts: The structure of these trusts can allow you to make a gift during your lifetime, and still continue to receive income for yourself and/or beneficiaries.  After the life interest has passed, the remaining principal will help the Y.  Donors can receive a tax deduction in the year the trust is established, can avoid capital gains, and reduce estate and gift taxes.  Please contact us for details and to notify the YMCA of Metro North of your transaction.

Wills/Bequests: The most common form of deferred gift to the Y is a bequest contained in a person’s will or revocable (living) trust. Please notify us of your intent to give.

Gifts of Retirement Plans: Naming the Y as a primary or contingent beneficiary of a retirement plan (e.g. IRA, SEP, 401(k), 403(b), ESOP, etc.) may enable you to make a larger gift than you anticipated as income and estate taxes may not be imposed when plan assets are distributed to the Y. Your retirement account’s plan administrator can help you designate the Y as a primary or contingent beneficiary on the plan’s beneficiary form. Please notify us of your intent to give.
