We can also tailor giving to your unique needs. Please contact Brooke Downey, Director of Administration, at 507-433-1804 to discuss the following opportunities:


Make a single or multi-year pledge of support that’s paid according to the schedule and payment method you desire.

Planned Giving

Remember the Y in your will, make us a beneficiary of your IRA or Life Insurance Policy or transfer a portion of your IRA funds to us. Planned Giving options enable you to create a lifetime steam of income for you and/or a family member, and you may receive significant charitable income tax or estate deductions.


Gifts of appreciated securities, stocks, bonds or mutual funds held for more than one year are easy to make and can provide a greater tax benefit than an equivalent gift in cash.

Real Estate

Under certain circumstances, the Y accepts gifts of appreciated real estate. Such a gift may help you avoid capital gains taxes and receive a charitable deduction for the full market value of the property.

If you have any additional questions about giving to the YMCA of Austin, contact Brooke Downey at 507.433.1804 or bdowney@ymca-austin.org.
