The Legacy Club is a way for the YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties to thank and recognize donors for demonstrating a commitment to the future of serving their community. By notifying the YMCA when you make a planned gift, you will receive the benefits of membership and encourage other friends of the YMCA to consider making their own future gifts to the endowment fund. As always we will respect the wishes of donors who desire to be anonymous. Benefits include:
- An invitation to the annual Celebration of Philanthropy, special Legacy Club gatherings, and other YMCA events.
- Access to estate planning resources, free of charge through Thompson and Associates, an estate planning firm.
- Receiving information about YMCA programs that interest you, and have the opportunity to meet staff and participants from these programs.
- Consultations for you and your advisor(s) with gift planning staff to ensure the best match between your charitable intentions and the YMCA's needs.
- Receiving updates on the growth of our endowment and where it is being used.
