Legacy Giving

A legacy gift is a special way to support your Y.

You can remember us in your will with a bequest, make a gift of life insurance, donate a gift of stock or create an endowment fund.

A Y donor tell us why he’s made a planned gift to the Y:

“I had life-saving surgery 5 years ago – a heart valve replacement and a triple bypass. As part of my rehabilitation, I joined the Y and have been attending fitness classes since then.  I have become lower risk for future cardiac events and I have even lost 34 pounds.  That’s why I started giving and have included the Y in my will. I want to show my gratitude for what the Y has done for me.”

By making a planned gift, you’ll be leaving a legacy, while providing you or your heirs with significant tax benefits.

As a Heritage Club member you will be invited to our annual recognition event and, with your permission, we’ll also list your name or your family’s name on our beautiful Donor Wall.

When making a planned gift, we take your personal financial situation and needs into account. Your lawyer, accountant, financial planner or insurance agent can help you determine what kind of planned gift would be best for you, your family and your estate. 

To speak with one of our staff about a planned gift to the Y, please contact Jack Silverstein, Vice-President of Financial Development at 613-237-1320 ext. 5139 or by e-mail at Your inquiry and any information exchanged will be held in strictest confidence.
