A gift to our Endowment Fund enables us to plan and deliver our programs to the community, knowing that a measure of stable income is always in place. In simplest terms, your donation is invested in the Fund, which was established by the YMCAs of Québec Foundation in 1984. The capital portion of the fund remains invested and protected in perpetuity, with only the interest used for operations.
Choose how to support our Endowment
Your gift to the Y’s Endowment Fund can take several forms:
The annual income from your gift supports the Y’s general mission. In this case, the Board of Directors’ selection committee each year reviews projects and programs and chooses those that will receive funding.
The interest from your gift can support a specific area of interest to you, such as homework help, enabling underprivileged kids go to camp or integrating new immigrants into Québec society.
The YMCA’s Heritage Club
Donors who contribute to the Endowment Fund are invited to join the Heritage Club. As a member, you’re kept informed about the Y’s activities and the status of the Fund. In addition, you’ll receive invitations to events such as the Heritage Club Dinner and the YMCAs of Québec Annual General Meeting.
