Charitable Giving small



Valuable life-changing programs and services will be continued for future generations thanks to the vision and commitment of those who participate in planned giving. Making a planned gift to the YMCA offers a flexible and simple way to combine philanthropy with financial planning. In fact, a planned gift may help you give more to the YMCA than you thought possible, while still providing you or someone you designate with favorable financial and/or tax benefits. Planned gifts to the YMCA are about planning for the future:  Your future and the future of children and families.  While each planned gift is unique, these gifts can offer significant financial or tax benefits while ensuring that future generations will enjoy the YMCA.

Help preserve the YMCA of Metuchen, Edison, Woodbridge and South Amboy for future generations and support our programs and services that promote healthy lifestyles.

Donors are encouraged to discuss their planned giving or estate giving options with their legal and/or financial advisors. Y staff are always willing to discuss ways in which donors can have the kind of impact on the Y and the children, families and seniors they may be seeking to support through their gift commitment.

Gifts may be unrestricted, designated to support a specific program area of the Y, or earmarked for endowment purposes. It is helpful to discuss giving plans with Y staff so that language can be drafted for use in any legal documents that will assure that the Y will be able to utilize a gift as you intend. Donors and their advisors are welcome to reach out to the YMCA Development Director, Elizabeth Bennett for assistance at 732-516-2087 or email
