Your donations will plant the seeds for future generations.

You’re thinking ahead. You want future generations to have the great camp and recreation experiences you had a youngster. You want your kids and grand kids to have a strong community and a wonderful future.

Leave a legacy with the YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka

Impact the lives of others forever by making a planned donation to the YMCA.

Ian and his wife Lisa both love the Y. They wanted their family’s legacy to help those who need it most. So Ian and Lisa chose to donate a life insurance policy to the YMCA. When they pass away it will kick into action, setting up an endowment fund to enable kids from low-income families to access life-enhancing programs forever.

“We have seen the benefits the Y offers to the community and want our daughters to be involved in our legacy of philanthropy.”

Ready to think about your legacy?

I am here to help you find a meaningful way to make a difference in your community through a legacy or planned gift to your YMCA. Give me a call, or send me an email. I look forward to building a healthier community with you.

Susan has worked in the social service field for over 20 years. In her current role as the Manager of Major and Planned Gifts at the YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka, Susan is responsible for the direction of the Annual Campaign, and the investment of Major and Planned gifts. Susan advises donors of new programs and important opportunities available to collaboratively build healthy communities both now and in the future.

Previous to joining the Y, Susan worked on the front lines in a Homeless Shelter, educating people about the services within their communities and fostering community partnerships to ensure comprehensive services were available to meet the needs of individuals experiencing a housing crisis. Susan also worked as the Manager of Resource Development for the United Way of Greater Simcoe County, Oakville and the Peel Region. During her time at the United Way, her goal was to bring people together to improve lives and strengthen neighbourhoods by engaging individuals and corporations to donate collectively and provide a social service safety net for anyone in crisis.

Susan’s motivation for the work that she does is to give people the tools and support they need to carry on with dignity, during times of crisis.
