Your YMCA support will help our community learn, grow and thrive for generations to come.


Many generous individuals wish to make gifts in the future to the YMCA of South Palm Beach County. They are giving through their estate plans or making immediate contributions that can generate a life income or special tax benefits. Each year, those individuals who choose to place the YMCA of South Palm Beach County in their wills or estate plans become members of the heritage club. 

 

HERITAGE CLUB
 

No matter the amount, big or small, anyone can be part of the Heritage Club:

The Heritage Club is a group of men and women who are committed to preserving a legacy for the YMCA. The YMCA of South Palm Beach County was chartered in 1972 and the Heritage Club was instituted in 2017. Both the Heritage Club and Heritage Club Dinner recognize, honor and thank those individuals who have included the YMCA in their long range estate plans.

Heritage Club members know first-hand that by nurturing the potential of every child and teen, improving the nation's health and well-being, and supporting and serving our neighbors, the Y ensures that everyone has the opportunity to become healthier, more confident, connected and secure.

As a Heritage Club member, you promise to perpetuate the purpose, values and traditions of the Y. Your contribution seals that promise by creating an everlasting legacy to future generations.

The Heritage Club is a way for the Y to thank and recognize donors during their lifetime for demonstrating their commitment to advancing the Y mission. Benefits include:

  • Confidence that notifying the Y of your plan allows the Y to plan better for the future and ensure long-term mission advancement.
  • Heritage Club events, updated, and reports about Y areas of focus that interest you.

You and your advisor(s) can consult with Y staff to ensure the best match between your charitable intentions and the Y's needs.

We like to recognize our Heritage Club Members with an annual Heritage Club Dinner event. Our next event is planned for February 16, 2022. Click HERE for a current list of our Heritage Club Members
