Endowment and The Heritage Society

Planning for the future:
For more than 125 years the YMCA of Delaware has been dedicated to building strong kids, strong families, and strong communities. Over those years many individuals have been committed to the mission and good work of the YMCA. For many that commitment extends beyond their own lifetime through planned gifts from their estate.

The YMCA Heritage Society:
An individual that commits a planned gift or makes a contribution to a current YMCA endowment fund, is honored by the YMCA as a Heritage Society Member. Members of our YMCA Heritage Society are invited annually to a dinner event and will receive several special release YMCA publications.

Ways to give:

  • To make an outright gift in cash, stock or securities to a current YMCA endowment fund, click here. Once here you will be given the opportunity to choose from over 40 existing Endowments.
  • If you’re considering naming your own endowment fund, creating a charitable remainder trust, a charitable gift annuity, or naming the YMCA in your insurance policy, please contact Matt Clements at mclements@ymcade.org or (302) 571-6962.

Stronger Together

At the Y, we stand against all forms of racism, discrimination, and hatred. We have a strong commitment to diversity, inclusion, and compassion for all.  We share the grief and outrage felt by the country in the wake of George Floyd’s death.  As we watch and experience the unrest and violence that continues to erupt throughout our communities, we acknowledge that this reality is fueled by generations of injustice. Together through the Y, we can be a positive force for change in every community we serve. We must unite. We must be heard, and we must do better.
