WE CAN'T SPELL SUCCESS WITHOUT U

Although well known for health, child care, camping, and youth sports, the depth of other YMCA mission-driven programs is often less recognized. Those seeking to have an impact on diverse communities will find resonance with the Y’s breadth of programs and services. As a charitable, nonprofit organization, the YMCA uses contributions to meet the ever-changing needs of under-served people of all ages, religions, ethnicities, and backgrounds. If you’re inspired by a specific interest, your gift may be designated to support life-changing initiatives that address that need. You may also endow specific centers, projects or the general endowment fund.

The determination to make a charitable gift is an expression of cherished values and priorities. The YMCA recognizes that no two donors and no two gifts are alike in their aspirations and motivations. Through a deliberate and thoughtful process, YMCA professionals will work with you and/or your advisers to create a giving opportunity that speaks to you and your family’s unique desires.

​The YMCA takes seriously the trust our donors place in us. Gifts to the Endowment Fund are kept in perpetuity and invested to generate income that is used to further the work of the YMCA. How a particular donor chooses to make a gift varies; whether an immediate or planned gift, all that is necessary is a commitment to benefit the YMCA’s Endowment. To ensure your gift is in keeping with your estate and financial needs, the YMCA encourages donors to discuss contributions with their family legal and/or financial advisers. To learn more about these exciting donation opportunities, contact the MDI YMCA's Executive Director at exec@mdiymca.org; by phone at 207-288-3511; or by mail at 21 Park Street, Bar Harbor, ME 04609.
