Gift Opportunities


By supporting the YMCA Annual Campaign you help guarantee that everyone, regardless of circumstance or ability to pay, can benefit from the YMCA's programs.

The Annual Campaign unites volunteers, donors, and participants as we build upon the strengths of each individual in our community. Won't you join our efforts to build strong kids, strong families and strong communities through your own gift?

Together, with the help of all YMCA of Greater New Orleans locations, we will raise more than $2 million. Each center has their own goal and all money raised at the center stays in that community to help those who need us most.


Capital Development efforts allow the Y to expand its reach and multiply the impact of its programs and services. These gifts provide opportunities for expansions or renovations of existing facilities and/or the development of new facilities ensure that the YMCA is ready to meet the ever changing needs of our region.


You can play a critical role in a child's development, security and happiness through a charitable gift to the YMCA OF GREATER NEW ORLEANS. By including us in your overall estate and financial plans, you can help ensure that we'll always be here to support future generations and that you'll be remembered. If you have additional questions or need help, you may always contact us.


We accept in-kind gifts which are donations of valuable products and/or services other than cash. Examples of these charitable contributions could include real estate, vehicles, etc. Receipts will be prepared by the Y and issued to the donor of in-kind gifts.


An employer match is a great way to increase the impact of your gift. Please check with your Human Resources department to see if your employer matches your donation.


A gift in honor is a great way to recognize a special occasion or send a holiday wish by letting that special someone know you are thinking of them. Share in their happiness by making a contribution in their name. When you make a gift we will send an acknowledgment of your gift to the recipient. The acknowledgment identifies you but does not include your gift amount.


A gift in memory of a loved one or friend is an emotional and thoughtful tribute to them and their accomplishments in life. For all memorial gifts, we will send an acknowledgment of your gift to the family of the person that you are making a tribute to. The acknowledgment identifies you but does not include your gift amount.
