Join our 170 Legacy Giving Programme

YMCA Exeter was founded in 1846 as one of the first YMCAs in the world and to celebrate, we are launching a brand new 170 Legacy Giving Programme.

170 years later we remain dedicated to helping young people build a brighter future in Devon. In fact we now support over 1000 children & young people every year in their time of need, helping them overcome adversity and reach their unique potential. For some this will be providing them with a safe home after they have experienced homelessness. For others it will be helping them with employability skills and still for others it will be creating welcoming environments where trusted adults can support them through tough circumstances.

As we celebrate 170 years, we want to invite you leave a Legacy Gift in your Will and join our 170 Legacy Giving Programme. Your gift will help ensure that YMCA Exeter is here in another 170 years.


This could be a gift of £170, £1,700 or £17,000 to help celebrate our 170th Anniversary, or it could be any other amount you choose at your discretion.

To help you in your journey, we have partnered with local law firm, Gilbert Stephens LLP, who are providing an exclusive offer in support of our Legacy Giving Programme. This offer includes:

– A free Will review
– A Codicil for a reduced rate of £50 +VAT (usually £125 +VAT)
-10% off the cost of a new Will

Please call our Legacies Team on 01392 410530 or email to arrange a confidential, no obligation chat.
