Make your passion for health and wellness, youth engagement, or Indigenous programming have a lasting impact. 

Whether you choose to set up an Endowment Fund today, or make a bequest in your will, there are options available to you so you can always continue to support the YMCA Calgary projects you are passionate about.

The YMCA Calgary Endowment promotes, supports, and funds YMCA Calgary initiatives to build healthier communities now and for future generations.

Donors can make a living gift or create a planned gift to the Endowment. Gifts are endowed which means they are invested in perpetuity. Annually, a portion of the investment income (between 3.5-5%) is used to fund YMCA Calgary programs each year. This source of sustainable income allows for long-term planning in order to meet the current and changing needs of the community.

Making a gift to the YMCA Calgary Endowment is about building sustainable futures to help generations of children and families thrive, promoting healthy living and creating belonging and connection. Your legacy makes sure that the YMCA is supported and gives you an opportunity to make a lasting difference in the lives of others—in your lifetime and beyond.

By making a charitable bequest in your will, you can leave a legacy that will help shape the future health and wellbeing of our communities.

A sentence in your will, or a codicil appended to your present will, that names YMCA Calgary as the beneficiary of a portion of your estate, or of particular assets in your estate, is all that is required.

When you leave YMCA Calgary in your will, you are joining a group of individuals who believe, as you do, that the YMCA is a trusted and valuable charity supporting the health and wellbeing of our community. Donors are recognized in our Heritage Club, which provides opportunities to stay connected with the YMCA through annual events and YMCA updates.
