Leave a Legacy

With thoughtful planning, you take control of the decisions that will affect your family’s future and pass on the values you hold dear. The YMCA of Greater Omaha is enriched when named a beneficiary of a donor’s will, insurance policy, retirement plan or trust and welcomes contributions to its endowment funds.

The Heritage Endowment Fund was established in 1980 and has continued to grow with the generosity of donors. It is entirely separate from the day-to-day YMCA operating funds. Monies in the Fund remain there forever; only the interest is spent each year to support the YMCA’s greatest current need or the purposes you designate. When you make a gift to the Fund, you become a member of the YMCA’s Heritage Club.

You may choose to designate a gift to the Fund through a will, living trust, life insurance, real estate, stock, and/or a charitable trust.

As we confront the challenges of the future, we know that the generosity of those who assist us will make all the difference in our success. That’s why we seek your support. But we also want to make sure that you benefit from making a gift to us. How does this happen? Of course, you have the satisfaction that comes from knowing you’ve made a difference in the lives of others. But in fact, the best gift plans also improve the donor’s financial and tax situation, often right away.
