Give Stock
You or your company can give stock, stock options and other investments to the YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles in one simple transaction.

A gift of stock owned for more than one year entitles you to a charitable deduction for the full market value at the time the gift is made. You benefit by avoiding capital gains taxes and reducing income taxes. The Y benefits by receiving property that is easy to sell and will generate funds to support Y programs. For more information, please email Edward Mullen, Vice President of Development or call 213-351-2286.

Give a Matching Gift
Many employers offer a matching gift program, which can double or even triple your gift. These programs not only match gifts given by employees, but also may match gifts given by company directors, employee spouses and retired employees.

To participate in your company’s matching gift program, visit the human resources office to obtain a matching gift form. Complete it and send it along with your gift to the YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles. We will notify your company of your contribution, and you can enjoy the satisfaction of knowing you’ve doubled your giving power without breaking a sweat!

Give a Gift in Honor or in Memory of a Friend or Loved One
Make a gift in honor or in memory of a friend or loved one by using your choice of contribution type, and we’ll send a note announcing your gift. Just let us know on whose behalf the donation is made, and to whom the note should be sent.
