Discover the Rewards of Charitable Planned Giving
Contribute To The Y
You can make a lasting difference in your community with a planned gift. By tailoring your gift to your own financial and estate planning needs, you can maximize the value of your charitable donation and still realize personal, financial and tax benefits.
In fact, a growing number of members are doing good deeds by making bequests of cash or property to the Y while they’re still alive.
The Y has a number of scholarship and memorial funds that allow you to make contributions in memory of someone or to honor a special person or a special occasion. They include:
The Dorothy & Elihu Englisher Memorial Scholarship Fund
In memory of the parents of our Executive Vice President. The fund provides children enrolled in the Nursery School with scholarship assistance.
Sidney Offerman and Victoria Offerman Kursch Memorial Scholarship Fund
Created in 1975 by the Offerman family in memory of our Past President, this fund provides families with scholarships to our summer day camps.
Morris A. Weil Scholarship Fund
Established in memory of a late founding Board member, the fund aids Nursery School children.
Pearl Marcus Memorial Fund
Established in memory of our late assistant executive director.
Judge David C. Lewis Fund
Established in memory of a founding Y board member, this fund supports capital improvements in the Y facility.
Monies received from the bequests of members greatly enhance and enrich the programs that the Y offers and also provide funding for capital projects.
