Planned Giving

Gifts from generous donors and friends bring life to the YMCA of Greater Cincinnati’s mission to help kids and families grow healthy spirit, mind, and body. Donors, like you, care about making a difference in our community. Through sincere and thoughtful giving, you provide valuable resources to the Y branches and programs.


For many decades, Y donors have prepared our organization for the future’s unknown needs by building a permanent, growing endowment. The Y’s endowment needs new contributions from today’s forward-thinking friends that will sustain the Y’s programs, services, and capital needs through prudent investments.


Our endowment not only represents the legacy of Great Cincinnatians, like the Nippert, Gamble, Williams, Stolle, and Emery families, but this vital source of funds underwrites the many programs that build assets and character for future community leaders.


Why not demonstrate your commitment to kids, families, and communities by joining others in building the Y’s endowment?


“It is all about the advantages of doing something for others with the assets one has accumulated during their lifetime. I can accomplish far more through a planned gift as I look to the future. We all want our children to grow up in a better world than we live in today.”


Planned gifts often enable donors to significantly increase their gift to the Y and at the same time create a lasting legacy. The YMCA of Greater Cincinnati encourages our donors and friends to consider making a planned gift so your life’s work will become a distinguished and meaningful contribution that benefits our community for many years to come.
