Planned Giving


Valuable life-changing programs and services will be continued for future generations thanks to the vision and commitment of those who participate in planned giving. Making a planned gift to the YMCA offers a flexible and simple way to combine philanthropy with financial planning. In fact, a planned gift may help you give more to the YMCA than you thought possible, while still providing you or someone you designate with favorable financial and/or tax benefits. Planned gifts to the YMCA are about planning for the future:  Your future and the future of children and families.  While each planned gift is unique, these gifts can offer significant financial or tax benefits while ensuring that future generations will enjoy the YMCA.


We accept in-kind gifts, which are donations of property other than cash and marketable securities. Examples of these charitable contributions could include real estate, art, life insurance, vehicles, products, building supplies and materials, office supplies and equipment such as furniture, computers, printers; Professional services and employee expertise.

Receipts will be prepared by the YMCA of Virginia's Blue Ridge and issued to the donor of in-kind gifts. Please contact VP of Development Kim Henderson at (540) 527-9622 for more information on gifts in-kind.
