The YMCA of Greater Vancouver Foundation is a separate registered charity that supports the programs and initiatives of the YMCA of Greater Vancouver. This support is made possible thanks to the generosity of individuals who have made a legacy gift to the YMCA. 

The Endowment Fund of the YMCA of Greater Vancouver is now officially the YMCA of Greater Vancouver Foundation. Our new name reflects our expanding work in supporting the YMCA during this period of unprecedented growth.

Although we’ve got a new name, we’re not abandoning our roots. Our purpose continues to be to support the YMCA of Greater Vancouver in building strong kids, strong families and strong communities – today and tomorrow. We have helped the YMCA of Greater Vancouver thrive for the past 65 years. Looking forward to 65 more!

Ways to Give

Leaving a legacy through the YMCA of Greater Vancouver Foundation is about building sustainable futures for vulnerable children, youth and families throughout the Lower Mainland. Your legacy makes sure that the YMCA is supported, and  gives you an opportunity to make a lasting difference in the lives of others—in your lifetime and beyond.

As with all legacy giving, we strongly recommend that you speak with your financial advisor, your family, and the YMCA to ensure you are choosing the legacy option that is right for you. Careful planning can mean more for family and charity, with less taxes payable from your estate.
