Make a Gift in Your Will

By making a charitable bequest in your will, you can leave a legacy that will help shape the future of our communities.

A sentence in your will, or a codicil appended to your present will, that names the YMCA of Greater Toronto as the beneficiary of a portion of your estate, or of particular assets in your estate, is all that is required.
