YMCA Heritage Club members are friends of the YMCA who are committed to preserving the heritage of the YMCA for years to come. Through their generous contributions, these people have given the YMCA the means to maintain long-range financial stability, which ensures that our programs, traditions and mission will continue for future generations.
"We support the Heritage Club because endowment will help assure that future generations inherit and benefit from the YMCA mission and principles." ~ Larry & Nancy Hoover
"Over 68 years ago, I became a member of the Y in Cleveland. I learned to swim and enjoyed a variety of Y programs and attended the Cleveland Y camp. All of these activities were made available to me, because previous generations of generous and caring people provided the financial resources. I feel it is my responsibility to give back a little of what was given to me, to help provide Y programs and facilities for future generations that will follow. Our Heritage Club helps make this possible through its permanent endowment program." ~ Bill Cumler
"We just love our community and enjoy giving back to our community through the Y." ~ RC* & Pat Miller *deceased
