Charitable Gift Planning

Providing for Future Generations: The Heritage Club

In a world that changes moment by moment, it is important to know there are things we can depend on. A safe environment for children to learn and grow. People we can trust to help us reach our potential.

At the YMCA of Northwest North Carolina, we realize that young people need a variety of positive experiences and qualities to grow up to be caring, competent, responsible members of the community. For 125 years, we have been offering values-based programs and services to enable people to develop in spirit, mind and body.

Our core values – caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and faith – have given the YMCA a strong foundation to respond to the changing needs in our community.

These values are a part of everything we do. And we believe they are an integral part of every child’s upbringing. They are building blocks that guide children and youth into adulthood.

Through your membership in The Heritage Club Endowment Fund, you will insure the future support of our children’s future.
