Create Your Y Legacy

Creating a Y legacy helps ensure that we are here today, and tomorrow for families in need across central Maryland. We have a variety of planned giving options that provide tax benefits while creating lasting support for the Y's mission. These include:

  • Designating a charitable bequest for the Y in your will or living trust.  
  • Naming the Y as a beneficiary of a retirement plan, life insurance policy or bank account.
  • Using a charitable IRA rollover and making gifts to the Y count toward your minimum distribution requirement while also excluding the transferred amount from your taxable income.  
  • Major gifts from cash, investments, or Donor Advised Funds.

Important details you'll need to get started:

Legal Name: The YMCA of Central Maryland
Address: 303 W. Chesapeake Ave., Baltimore, MD 21204
