planned giving

Leave your lasting legacy.

Making a planned gift to the Y offers a flexible and simple way to combine philanthropy with financial planning. For generations to come, your long-lasting gift is vital to sustaining our movement.

give where it is needed most.

The Y has been at the heart of communities for generations. A healthy Y is capable of making a significant impact in the community.  Led by local volunteers, the Y is in touch with our community's changing needs.  Donors can direct their gifts to support the overall work of the Y - where funds are needed most, or designate them to support an area of major focus that will remain integral to the Y and our community for generations.  

giving is as individual as you

The determination to make a charitable gift is an expression of cherished values and priorities.  The Fond du Lac Family YMCA recognizes that no two donors and no two gifts are alike in their aspirations and motivations.

Gifts of any amount can be made in any of the following ways:

  • An outright gift of cash or appreciated assets
  • Bequest, by including the Y in your estate plan
  • Charitable gift annuity
  • Charitable trust
  • Retirement asset
  • Life insurance
