The Legacy Club is an association of friends of the YMCA from all across the country. Like you, these people seek to ensure that the future needs of our youth are met by including their
local YMCA in their estate plans. This planning might include a will, charitable gift annuity, a trust arrangement, a real estate gift, or a life insurance policy.
