leaving a legacy 

Legacy Society 2017 image_Page_1.png

The Y has a long legacy of responding to the needs of its community's children, families, adults, and seniors. Although our Capital Campaign to build a new Y facility is not yet in its public phase, we have received numerous requests to support the project now. Our Legacy Society provides that opportunity. This is your chance to influence the Capital Campaign for the NEW Y right now. 

This donor society includes a number of member benefits like an annual event and campaign updates, but it requires a financial commitment of $5,000 or more. By making a commitment now, Legacy Society members ensure significant momentum for the campaign and will participate as visionary donors. For more information about Legacy Society membership, please contact Lisa MacMaster at lmacmaster@eugeneymca.org or 541-686-9622.

Additional opportunities for naming rights in the new building also exist and interested parties should contact Lisa MacMaster. Gifts of any size are always welcomed and can be earmarked for the new building; membership in the Legacy Society is not required to make a gift to the campaign.

Ways to Give to the Legacy Society: 

Cash: An outright gift of $5,000 or more payable in cash or by check, to the Eugene Family YMCA, earmarked for the Capital Campaign.
Securities: Transferring your appreciated stock is easy. Contact Lisa MacMaster at 541.686.9622 or lmacmaster@eugeneymca.org for details.
Bequests: Designate the Y as a beneficiary of your estate by will, trust or other instrument as a specific sum, or a percentage of your estate’s residue.
Charitable Trusts: Transfer cash or property to fund a trust that makes a gift to the Y. You receive a charitable deduction for the gift, your family can receive the remainder at a tax savings.
