Partners in healing the whole person
LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA is a 12 evidence-based program that helps adult cancer survivors reclaim their health and well-being following a cancer diagnosis. The YMCA creates a welcoming community in which survivors can improve their strength and physical fitness, diminish the severity if therapy side effects, develop supportive relationships, and improve their quality of life.
The River Valley Regional YMCA offers LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA at four of its five branch locations at no cost to the survivor or their family. This is why we need your help.
$ 50 - $150 - support the LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA program
Planned Gifts to the YMCA are about planning for the future.
As a friend of the Y, we know that you share our hopes that the River Valley Regional YMCA will continue to be a strong, positive force in our community for generations to come. A gift to the Y’s Endowment Fund ensures your personal legacy to support the Y’s mission. A gift to the Endowment Fund is the greats confirmation of the YMCA mission that a friend of the Y can show and makes you a member of the River Valley Regional YMCA’s Heritage Club.
WHAT IS ENDOWMENT GIVING?
Endowment giving is a method of donating to the RVR YMCA investment fund. This fund is invested to earn annual income and as the principle grows, so does the income. A portion of the growth income is then used to support the work of the YMCA, while the principle always remains intact and invested – in order to perpetuate the fund.
WHY DO THE BRANCHES OF THE RIVER VALLEY REGIONAL YMCA EACH NEED AN ENDOWMENT FUND?
Endowment funds are a reliable and ongoing source of support for the YMCA – helps build a stable foundation to build the Y’s future on.
WAYS TO GIVE
