Every day we see many faces of need within the Pomona Valley area. CHILDREN ARE IN NEED of safe and affordable before and after school care that deepens their motivation to learn. SOME CHILDREN need youth sports and other healthy programs to combat childhood obesity, and all children need programs like day camp to offer the thrill of meeting a new friend or developing a new skill. TEENS NEED POSITIVE role models and engaging activities during critical periods when good choices must prevail over bad. Our seniors must not be forgotten. They need affordable opportunities for stimulating activities and socialization. Most of all, our families need a healthy place to belong and grow in spirit, mind and body.

Would you like to honor a friend or a loved one? Would you like your family name to live on in perpetuity? Would you like to give more than you can currently afford? YMCA Endowment Funds are a gift to create an everlasting family legacy for future generations. A gift through planned giving can be an ideal way to realize your larger charitable objectives. Endowments and Planned Giving ensure the continued service of our YMCA.
How Donations Are Used
Endowment Funds provide a stable source of income to ensure that the YMCA continues its mission for future generations. Proceeds from the principal can be unrestricted in use or designated for a specific purpose or to an individual branch. These funds pay out interest every year, in both good and difficult times. All YMCA Endowment investments are carefully managed by professional investment advisors under the direction of the Board of Directors.
Endowments Are Used To:
- Enhance current programs
- Provide financial assistance for programs and/or member fees
- Begin new programs
- Improve or maintain YMCA branches
Endowments ($10,000 or more)
Establishment of a new endowment begins with a minimum gift of $10,000. Donations of lesser amounts can be added to an existing endowment. Endowment Fund Donors are recognized as members of the Heritage Club. Unless anonymity is desired, Heritage Club member’s names are recognized prominently in the Annual Report, on the books and records of the YMCA and are permanently acknowledged on the donor wall in the YMCA lobbies.
Bequests (Any Amount)
A gift to the YMCA identified in your will allows you to retain all your assets during your lifetime and/or the lifetime of your spouse.
Life Insurance (Any Amount)
When the added protection of an insurance policy is no longer needed, transferring the policy’s ownership or purchasing a policy with the YMCA as beneficiary may be an affordable option.
Charitable Trusts (Any Amount)
Establish a charitable trust and/or annuity with income or principle designated to the YMCA.
