The New Canaan YMCA Campaign for the Future

Ways to Give

We believe that a stronger Y means a stronger community, and that both will be achieved through this renovation.

Only through strong community support can we make this vision a reality. Whether you are a Y member who visits us each day, have watched your kids grow through a Y program, enjoy bringing your family to special events, or simply believe in supporting healthy living and youth development, we invite you to join us in making our vision a reality.

Ways to Give

  • Campaign contributors may elect to make multi-year pledges to enhance their giving capacity.
  • Gifts of appreciated securities or real estate provide additional tax benefits
  • A gift of cash or securities is the easiest way give.
  • The donor can deduct the fair market value of stock as a charitable gift and not be subject to capital gains tax on the appreciation.
  • The Y will accept gifts of life insurance or other planned gifts which will leave a legacy of healthy living for our community to future generations.

Donor Spotlight
“As long time supporters of the New Canaan YMCA the Karp Family is happy to play a significant role in the upcoming Y’s revitalization. It is important to support the plan and mission for an institution that is an important part of the Town of New Canaan now and for generations to come. We will plant for the future as previous generations have planted for us.” - Arnold and Lisa Karp karp
