Annual Campaign

Each year, the YMCA of Greater Louisville rallies the support of the community with its Annual Campaign. This is a time when community members, businesses, foundations, YMCA volunteers and staff come together to help guarantee that everyone can benefit from life-changing Y experiences.

At the Y, we're here for all and here for good. Our commitment to help everyone grow in spirit, mind and body is only possible with the support of our donors and volunteers. Contributions received from our Annual Campaign efforts allow us to provide the growing number of scholarships awarded to individuals and families in need of vital Y programs and services.

In the past year, the YMCA of Greater Louisville has provided over $6 million to more than 20,000 families and individuals, right here in our own community.

Gifts of Securities and Stocks

Throughout the history of the YMCA, generous individuals, corporations and foundations have made leadership gifts that have helped shape the future of the Y in our community.

By donating appreciated stocks, bonds and mutual fund shares that have been owned for more than one year, donors can avoid capital gains tax. They also receive an income tax deduction for the fair market value of the gift. A security’s gift value is determined by its fair market value on the day you make the gift.

If you would like to talk to someone about your legacy planning options, how to accomplish your charitable giving goals, donating securities or your future vision of support for the Y's mission, contact us at 502-587-9622.
