Planned Giving

Heritage Club recognizes generous donors who ensure the health of the Y with a planned gift through their estate—through a will provision; through naming the Y as a beneficiary of a retirement fund or life insurance policy; or through other means such as trusts. If you are considering a planned gift—or have already made one—please reach out so we can recognize you as a member of the Heritage Club and discuss what you hope to achieve through the gift. Contact Rick at [email protected] or 802.652.8146.
