In order to ensure our services continue providing high quality care, support and advice we rely upon the generosity of the local community to share our passion and give towards our ongoing work.

There are a variety of ways in which you can give to YMCA and we hope to guide you through the process, ensuring you always know how your money is making a difference.

Leave a gift in your Will

YMCA Exeter was founded in 1846 as one of the first YMCAs in the world over 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 over 170 years, we invite you leave a 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)
