Donate to the Y Foundation

Dear Friend of the Y Foundation,

How lucky we are that 60 years ago, 16 extraordinary visionaries recognized what an enormous asset the Y is to our region. They wanted to be sure this community focused and beloved organization would forever be able to meet the needs of our region. This is why they created The Bangor Y Foundation.

As President of the Foundation, I ask you to follow in the path of these leaders and contribute so we will keep the Foundation strong, forever providing the necessary capital support to our amazing Y. Our goal is to have 200 people contribute $200 each. Lifetime Membership to the Foundation is $2,000. As you know, the funds are invested for long term growth. This is a very different purpose than the Annual Giving Campaign, which provides financial assistance for those in need all during the year and helps take care of the day-to-day Y activities. The Foundation is the one entity that must stay strong to cover those bricks and mortar needs of the Y.

It is up to us to live up to the legacy that was left for us by these 16 brilliant and fore-thinking men of 6 decades ago, and leave a legacy that is worthy of our children and future generations.

Join us, along with the rest of our Trustees and Contributors, by submitting your contribution to The Bangor Y Foundation in honor of our founding fathers’ vision and wisdom, as well as honoring the generations to come who will benefit from your generosity.
