The Lock Haven YMCA is dedicated to feeding our local childeren through the Backpack Program. For many children, school meals may be the only nutritious meals they eat all week. With your help we can provide child friendly, nutritious, non-perishable, and easy to eat foods for the weekend. Our goal is to help our children stay strong, healthy and mentally ready to return to school on Monday morning.
With your gift, you help people move forward. The Y provides the support and opportunities that empower people and communities to achieve personal growth in spirit, mind and body. Join us as we work to remove barriers so that everyone in our community has the opportunity to live, grow and thrive!
Ways to give...
|There are a number of ways that the Y will gratefully accept your donation including:|
Gifts of Cash
A gift of cash is available immediately for the Lock Haven Area YMCA's use and in most cases is 100% deductible for donors who itemize deductions. Your check should be made payable to the Lock Haven Area YMCA.
Pledges are accepted with a signed letter of intent and payable over three years.
Gifts of Securities
Increasingly, donors are using appreciated securities – including publicly traded and privately held stock and mutual funds – to make gifts to the Lock Haven Area YMCA. This method of giving allows the donor to take a charitable deduction for the full current value of appreciated securities held longer than one year and avoid paying the capital gains tax that would be due if the donor sold the securities.
IRA Charitable Rollover
Donors can give up to $100,000 per year, for the current tax year, from their IRAs and exclude the distribution from income. Donor must be at least 70 years of age on the date of the gift to a public charity.
Gifts of Real Estate
Real estate, such as a piece of land, a house or a farm, may be given outright, in which case the Lock Haven Area YMCA will sell the property and use the proceeds for purposes designated by the donor. Any appreciated value is not usually subject to federal capital gains tax, and a substantial charitable deduction may be claimed.
*Always contact your financial and/or tax advisor for specific deductibility implications.
