YMCA Heritage Club members are friends of the YMCA who are committed to preserving the heritage of the YMCA for years to come.  Through their generous contributions, these people have given the YMCA the means to maintain long-range financial stability, which ensures that our programs, traditions and mission will continue for future generations.

Each year, members of the Heritage Club gather to welcome new members, share fellowship and reflect on successes made possible by endowment contributions. Members are also invited to other YMCA events and special programs throughout the year.

How to qualify for the Heritage Club:

Make or revise a will directing a percentage or fixed amount to the FREMONT FAMILY YMCA Foundation;

Create a charitable remainder unitrust or an annuity trust, a pooled life income, a charitable gift annuity, a short-term trust, a life estate or a bank deposit that eventually directs all or a portion of the principle to the Fremont Family YMCA Endowment Fund.
