GIFTS OF SECURITIES

Securities may be donated to the Y and can provide tax advantages that gifts of cash cannot.  To make a gift of stock, download our stock transfer form that includes instructions for making the transfer of securities and instructions for the Y for the use of your gift.  Please contact the Financial Development office for details and to notify the Y of your transaction at 732.671.5505, ext. 131 or giving@cymca.org.

CHARITABLE REMAINDER ANNUITY TRUSTS AND UNITRUSTS

The structure of these trusts can allow you to make a gift during your lifetime, and still continue to receive income for yourself and/or beneficiaries.  After the life interest has passed, the remaining principal will help the Y.  Donors can receive a tax deduction in the year the trust is established, can avoid capital gains, and reduce estate and gift taxes.   Please contact the Financial Development office for details and to notify the Y of your transaction at 732.671.5505, ext. 131 or giving@cymca.org.

LIFE INSURANCE

When new or existing policies name the Y as owner or beneficiary of your policy, all subsequent premium payments become tax-deductible contributions.

Once you have named the Y on your life insurance policy please contact The Financial Development office at 732.671.5505, ext 131 or via e-mail at giving@cymca.org.

WILLS/BEQUESTS

A rewarding way to remember the Y is by designating a portion or set amount of your estate to pass to the Y. Those who have made plans for the Y, become members of the Heritage Club. If you have designated the Y or are planning to, please notify us so we can enroll you in the Heritage Club and steward your future gift. Please contact The Financial Development office at 732.671.5505, ext. 131 or via e-mail at giving@cymca.org.
