Making a gift in your will

Build a legacy with the Y

The YMCA has been serving communities in Québec for over 165 years and is committed to delivering its mission for many decades to come. You can ensure that we remain responsive and relevant by planning a future gift. Bequests, gifts of life insurance and charitable annuities allow you to leave a legacy while benefiting from specific tax advantages.

Making a gift in your will requires thought and planning but remains the simplest way of providing future support to the Y. You can leave your legacy in the following ways:

  • a specific amount;
  • a percentage of your estate;
  • your residuary estate (what remains after debts and specific bequests).

It is important that you discuss your wishes with us to ensure that your gift will have the impact you want.
