Planned Giving

Planting the seeds for future generations.

What Is Planned Giving?

It’s simple. A planned or legacy gift ensures you’ll continue supporting the causes close to you in the future.  If you plan for your legacy during your lifetime, you can see first-hand the difference your support will make for many children, youth, and families across Grey and Bruce Counties.

Why Give?

Together we can create a healthier future for our children and grandchildren. We can make safe places to learn, play, and grow. We can create a place where everyone can participate and is given the opportunity to reach their full potential. At the YMCA of Owen Sound Grey Bruce, we see barriers removed, doors opened, and communities succeeding together.

By planning your legacy now, you can help us create the foundation for a healthy, vibrant future – for children, youth, families, and communities across the region. Please help us give more individuals today, hope for tomorrow.

We hope you will consider making us a part of your legacy.

What Are My Options?

There are numerous options available, but don’t worry – we’ll talk you through it. Your choices include:

Gift for the Present

A gift of cash is a simple way to give.

Transfer your stocks to receive a tax receipt for the market value at time of transfer.

Gift for the Future

A charitable bequest can be as simple as adding a sentence or two in your Will, or a codicil appended to your present Will.

You can designate all or some of the funds in your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) or Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF) to support the YMCA.

Life Insurance
Enables you to provide a significant future gift at a very modest current cost.

Gifts that Give Back

Some planned gifts “pay you back” by paying you income or allowing you to enjoy the use of your property even after you have given it to the YMCA.

  • Gift Annuities
  • Charitable Remainder Trust
  • Gift of Residual Interest

Next Steps:

When wording your bequest or other gift document, please specify the beneficiary as the “YMCA of Owen Sound Grey Bruce”.
