The YMCA exists today because of a combination of autonomy, creativity, practicality, and the Y’s solid commitment to its core values. This mission-faithfulness led by a multitude of civic and corporate community leaders then and now, has resulted in the historical significance of our YMCA Association. Our YMCA has managed change effectively for more than a century, while simultaneously prioritizing it’s loyalty to the original mission that created it.
This mission-faithfulness is a comforting historical fact when considering a planned gift, and instills confidence that the YMCA will continue to pioneer programs and innovatively serve, because of the generosity of today’s planned gift donors, our Heritage Club members.

Endowment Fund

The Y’s Endowment Fund consists of board restricted endowments, and endowments designated by the donor for a particular branch, camp, service, or program. The volunteer Board of Trustees of the Great Miami Valley YMCA has overall responsibility for managing all endowment funds, including the security and preservation of the principal, investment for income, and investment for growth and utilization. The GMV YMCA welcomes a variety of planned gifts, including outright gifts, wills and bequests, life insurance, gift annuities, charitable trusts, stocks, real estate, and retirement assets.
The Great Miami Valley YMCA is deeply honored to be remembered by our friends in such a personal and significant way. If you would like more information or to discuss how you too, can plan to impact tomorrow’s youth for generations to come, please contact Kimberly Munafo, Vice President of Development at (513) 887-0001 ext. 12.
