Meaningful Legacy Giving

YMCA of Greater San Antonio's Endowment Fund

Gifts to the YMCA's Endowment Fund provide a stable, enduring source of funding that protects the YMCA's ability to positively influence our community for generations to come.  Endowed funds are wisely invested and held in perpetuity according to donors' wishes. A portion of the interest earnings is used as designated by the donor for the YMCA of Greater San Antonio or their local branch.  Common uses include capital improvements, program support, preschool & camping scholarships, financial assistance for low-income participants, facility maintenance and YMCA general operating support. 

Leave a Legacy - Heritage Club & Planned Gifts

The YMCA of Greater San Antonio encourages planned gifts as a primary means of building strong endowment resources. Membership in the Y Heritage Club helps create a lasting legacy and will touch lives through YMCA programs for generations to come.
