More Ways to Give

Join us in creating a world of opportunity for youth! There are many different ways to support Y.O.U. and the youth and families we serve.

Y.O.U. Legacy Partners

Join us in building a legacy that will carry on through future generations.

We have established the Y.O.U. Legacy Partners to continue to provide a way for our most dedicated supporters to join us in lasting support for our youth.

Legacy Gift Options

A planned gift can meet your financial interests, may reduce taxes, and can fulfill your desire to support Y.O.U.

  • BENEFICIARY: The simplest planned gift involves updating an existing retirement account (IRA or 401K) or life insurance policy to include Y.O.U. as a beneficiary. Naming Y.O.U. as a beneficiary in these instances allows your gift to be received in a timely manner, and often avoids probate.
  • BEQUEST: A bequest made through a will or trust is another simple way to leave a legacy.
