Corporate Social Responsibility
Support the Y's initiatives and programs aligned with your company’s values, while enjoying benefits including volunteer opportunities, event recognition, and corporate memberships.
The Y connects people of all ages daily through a variety of programs and citywide initiatives including, but not limited to: STEM Academy, Youth and Government, Truancy Prevention, Outdoor Environmental Education, One to One Mentoring, Family Strengthening Activities and more.
Create your legacy by exploring the many ways you can support our mission well into the future by joining the Y's Heritage Club.
The YMCA of San Francisco recognizes the generous individuals who are leaving a legacy commitment to the Y through their wills, retirement plans, and other planned-giving arrangements. A gift to the Y's endowment ensures the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility endure and programs will positively impact our community for generations to come.
Make the YMCA of San Francisco a beneficiary by:
- Bequest provision in your will or revocable trust
- Life Insurance Policy
- Charitable Remainder Trust & Charitable Gift Annuity
- Retirement Plans
- Real Estate
- Outright Gift (Cash or Securities)
- Memorial or Honorary Gift
Gift of Securities
Gifting stock or mutual funds is a wonderful way to support the Y and bypass capital gains taxes. A gift of stock (or other appreciated property) entitles you to a market value tax deduction and if the stock has been held for more than one year, capital gains tax may be avoided on any appreciation by donating the stock prior to sale. The Y benefits by selling the stock without paying taxes on the gain, and you benefit from making a contribution that would be larger than what you might have been able to donate in cash.
For stock held in brokerage accounts, your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock through a direct transfer to the YMCA of San Francisco.

To ensure that you receive appropriate credit for your stock gift, you may email, mail or fax the securities transfer form below with your information including donor name, stock and number of shares.
Donor Advised Funds (DAFs)
A DAF is a type of charitable giving account that allows donors to combine multiple donations into a single account and make grants over time. This can be a convenient way to give to the YMCASF, as you can recommend grants to the organization whenever you choose. Contributions to a DAF are invested and grow tax-free. This means the return on your charitable contributions can go straight to the Y and other charities you admire.
To double or triple your impact, check with your Human Resources or Philanthropy Department to determine if your company will match your contribution -every donation makes a huge impact in the lives of those we serve.
The YMCA of San Francisco is a 501(c)(3) organization and all contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Our Tax ID is 94-0997140.
