Cambridge YMCA Giving Programs

Philanthropy at the Cambridge YMCA takes many forms:

Memorial and Honorarium Gifts

These are gifts given in memory or in honor of someone you love or admire.  You may designate your contribution toward the annual fund or to a particular program of interest.  In either case, it is a meaningful way to support the Y while showing appreciation to someone you love.
Remembering the Cambridge YMCA in your will reduces the taxable portion of your estate and ensures that the good work of the Y will continue in your name in perpetuity.

Life Insurance

For a relatively low monthly or annual cost, you may purchase a life insurance policy naming the Cambridge YMCA as the owner and beneficiary. Your policy payments are tax deductible.


Gifts of securities are appreciated and welcomed.  They are typically  processed through a broker and the value is based on the date of transfer. Thank you for continued support.

Annual Campaign

The Annual Campaign is the most common form of giving to the Cambridge YMCA. These gifts are typically unrestricted and come from a variety of sources i.e. corporations, local businesses, directors, members and neighbors.  The Annual Campaign supports all programs and activities at the Y and donations are accepted throughout the year.
