Gifts of Cash

Making a cash donation is as simple as writing a check, or authorizing a charge on your credit card or authoring bank drafts.

Gifts of Securities

Stock that has increased in value is one of the most popular assets used for charitable giving.  Call the Development office for details on how to make a gift of securities.

Gifts of Retirement Plan Assets

Your financial future will likely revolve around your retirement plan assets. To maximize the value of a retirement account, consider making a lifetime gift of its after-tax values to a tax-exempt, deferred giving plan.

Gifts of Real Estate

Using real estate to fund a gift allows you to preserve your cash assets, receive significant tax and income advantages and make a larger charitable gift than anticipated.

Gifts of Life Insurance

Donating your life insurance could be a wonderful way to fulfill your desire to support our work. By making the Wyckoff Family YMCA the beneficiary of an existing policy, you make good use of your resources and expand your ability to make a significant gift.


Consider naming the Wyckoff YMCA in your will or trust.

Matching Gifts

Many employers match charitable contributions made by their employees and in some cases will also match donations made by spouses,  retirees, and board members.

The Wyckoff Family YMCA is a non-profit, 501(c)3 social service organization.  We provide a wide variety of programs and services for people of all ages and abilities. No one is ever turned away for inability to pay.
