The Community Foundation of Frederick County (www.frederickcountygives.org ) administers four charitable funds which benefit the YMCA of Frederick County:

YMCA of Frederick County Financial Assistance Fund
YMCA Restricted Endowment
Alvin G. Quinn Scholarship Fund For Youth
M. Robert Ritchie Charitable Gift Fund

If a donor plans to make a gift to a fund benefiting the Y or wants to create a new fund benefiting the Y, planned giving is an excellent option. It enables the donor to make a transformational gift to the organization without affecting the money in their pocket. The Community Foundation provides web-based tools illustrating different planned giving options, which are flexible depending on the needs of the donor.

To access information and tools, simply go to: https://cffredco.giftlegacy.com/
Here a donor can create a plan, utilize calculators, view sample bequest language and much more.

Should you or a loved one be interested in learning more about planned giving options at the YMCA of Frederick County, please contact Tom Clingman at (301) 663-5131 or tclingman@frederickymca.org.
