Annual Campaign

The Annual Campaign is the most common form of giving to the Cambridge YMCA. These gifts are typically unrestricted and come from a variety of sources i.e. corporations, local businesses, directors, members, and neighbors. The Annual Campaign supports all programs and activities at the Y and donations are accepted throughout the year.

Memorial & Honorarium Gifts

These are gifts given in memory or in honor of someone you love or admire.  You may designate your contribution toward the annual fund or to a particular program of interest.  In either case, it is a meaningful way to support the Y while showing appreciation to someone you love.
Remembering the Cambridge YMCA in your will reduces the taxable portion of your estate and ensures that the good work of the Y will continue in your name in perpetuity.

Life Insurance

For a relatively low monthly or annual cost, you may purchase a life insurance policy naming the Cambridge YMCA as the owner and beneficiary. Your policy payments are tax-deductible.


Gifts of securities are appreciated and welcomed.  They are typically processed through a broker and the value is based on the date of transfer. Thank you for your continued support.
