The YMCA Calgary Endowment promotes, supports, and funds YMCA Calgary initiatives to build healthier communities now and for future generations.

Donors can make a living gift or create a planned gift to the Endowment. Gifts are endowed which means they are invested in perpetuity. Annually, a portion of the investment income (between 3.5-5%) is used to fund YMCA Calgary programs each year. This source of sustainable income allows for long-term planning in order to meet the current and changing needs of the community.

Making a gift to the YMCA Calgary Endowment is about building sustainable futures to help generations of children and families thrive, promoting healthy living and creating belonging and connection. 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.
