GIVING TUESDAY 2017
After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we want to kick off the holiday season on November 28 by participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving.
Consider giving to a place that brings people together like no other place!
The Y has opened its doors to people of all ages and incomes for 150 years. The new building that opened in April of 2001 serves an average of over 10,000 participants in our surrounding communities per year. Remaining true to its mission, the Y never turns people away due to an inability to pay.
Last year, the Y awarded over $200,000 in financial assistance to over 1,000 people. This is possible thanks to support from our Annual Campaign, and the volunteers who help raise these funds.
You can be a part of this special resource by supporting the Y’s Annual Campaign. With your financial assistance, more children, teens, families, and seniors will be able to enjoy the YMCA services regardless of their ability to pay. The Y runs its Annual Campaign with community volunteers. You can help by volunteering, or by contributing to this community effort. Contributions are welcome all year.
We are fortunate to have this beautiful 58,000 square foot facility in our community. If you take a moment to look at the Y plaques displayed on the wall in our lobby, you will see that over 600 donors helped to pay for the bricks and mortar that we enjoy today. We are on the road to completing this campaign but we are not there yet! Please consider a donation to the Capital Campaign.
What better way to leave a legacy than to support your YMCA’s Endowment fund? One of the characteristics of our day is the tendency of men and women to make provisions for the perpetuation of their influence beyond their lifetime. More and more people are setting aside a portion of their resources to continue their benevolent interest in the people of their community.
You can make a lifetime gift, or bequest to strengthen and extend the services of the Bath Area Family YMCA. The following will qualify you as a member of the YMCA Heritage Club:
- Making or revising a will directing a percentage, a fixed amount, or an eventual gift to the YMCA Endowment Fund.
- Naming the YMCA Endowment Fund as a primary or secondary beneficiary or owner of a new or existing insurance policy.
- Making an outright gift of money, property, stock, or insurance to the Endowment Fund of the YMCA.
All contributions are tax deductible. Call the Y to schedule a meeting about your charitable giving options and ask for Sabrina Murphy.
