Heritage Club


Missouri Valley Family YMCA Endowment Fund

The Heritage Club recognizes individuals and families who have made a direct (outright) gift or planned gift to the YMCA’s Endowment Fund to ensure that YMCA programs will always be accessible to the people who need them most.

Membership in the Heritage Club simply requires a commitment of a gift now or in the future that will benefit the Endowment Fund in order to ensure a strong YMCA for future generations. Gifts will be allocated to the Endowment Fund, with annual distributions determined by the Board of Directors of the Missouri Valley Family YMCA.


Appreciated Asset

Contribute stock, real estate or personal property and receive a charitable deduction equal to the current value of the asset without capital gains tax.

Charitable Trust

Establish a charitable trust or annuities that provide the donor with a fixed or variable lifetime income and receive a charitable deduction at the same time.

Life Insurance

Purchase a life insurance policy naming the Y as the beneficiary and take out a charitable deduction equal to the premium.

Outright Gift

Make an immediate donation and take a charitable deduction as provided by law.

Real Estate

Donate a home or real estate property and enjoy the benefits of ownership for life while receiving an immediate charitable donation.

Retirement Plan

Name the Y as full or partial beneficiary on your IRA or qualified retirement plan to avoid penalty of both income and estate taxes.

Our YMCA has served the Bismarck Mandan area since 1967. It is one of the oldest and most recognized youth and family service organizations in the region. When contemplating a pathway that will lead to your personal legacy, you can feel confident that a gift to the YMCA Endowment Fund will be a gift that lasts a lifetime building strong kids, families and communities for generations to come.

The Endowment Fund draws only on interest, never principle. In this way we give everyone the security of knowing there will always be a Missouri Valley Family YMCA.
