Formed in 1976, White Birch, the legacy society at Silver Bay YMCA, has over 275 members who have included Silver Bay in their wills or other planned or deferred gifts. Its donors, through their endorsement of the Silver Bay mission, ensure the preservation of “the Silver Bay experience” for future generations to love and enjoy. You have lived it, and you have loved it….now start your legacy.
During the past several years, Silver Bay has received over $2.1 million in estate gifts, with a majority designated to the unrestricted Silver Bay Endowment Fund. This fund is invested in a well-diversified portfolio, which is overseen by the Finance Committee of the Board of Trustees. Annual income from the unrestricted endowment is an important source of long-term funding for Silver Bay’s many programs and facility needs.
