WAYS TO GIVE

Planned gifts have significant tax benefits and best of all, enable individuals the joy of making a much larger gift than they could ever imagine. Planned gifts to the Akron Area YMCA Endowment Foundation are designated to the general fund or to a particular program or branch.

Gifts of Cash

Gifts of cash are generally fully tax deductible to the extent allowed by law and a tax form will be supplied to you. If your employer "matches gifts", your gift will be worth even more! Please check with your Human Resources department and enclose any matching gift paperwork with your donation.

Please mark the branch or program that would best fit your donation and send check or credit card information to:

Akron Area YMCA
50 S Main St,  Suite LL100  
Akron, OH 44308

Gifts of Stock

A gift of appreciated stock is a good way to make a charitable gift.

Gifts of Life Insurance

Give a Matching Gift

Many employers offer a matching gift program, which can double or even triple your gift. These programs not only match gifts given by employees, but also may match gifts given by company directors, employee spouses and retired employees.

To participate in your company's matching gift program, visit your human resources office to obtain a matching gift form. Complete it and send it along with your gift to the Akron Area YMCA. We will notify your company of your contribution, and you can enjoy the satisfaction of knowing you've doubled your giving power without breaking a sweat!
 
Give a Gift in Honor or in Memory of a Friend or Loved One

Make a gift in honor or in memory of a friend or loved one by using your choice of contribution type, and we'll send a note announcing your gift. Just let us know on whose behalf the gift is made, and to whom the note should be sent.

Named Funds

Gifts to the Akron Area YMCA Endowment Foundation are made to the general fund. Each year the Foundation Board determines the distribution in conference with the YMCA's leadership, or to the fund of a specific branch. There are also opportunities to provide an endowment for specific YMCA programs (such as camp scholarships) or positions (such as teen directors).

Donors may establish a named fund through a gift of $10,000 or more.

For more information on the Akron Area YMCA Endowment Foundation, current or planned gifts toward the endowment, membership in the Heritage Club, opportunities for named funds and confidential illustrations that fit your personal financial situation and goals, please contact Brian Bidlingmyer at 330-376-1335.
