Heritage Club

The YMCA Heritage Club is a group of individuals, couples and families that have made a lasting investment in our community through their commitment to the YMCA Endowment Fund. 

Members of the Heritage Club have the knowledge that because of their gift, the Y will continue to provide valuable, life-enriching programs that will be available for generations to come. 

Heritage Club membership is gained through a minimum pledge of $5000 which can be designated in a variety of ways to assure the long-term viability of the YMCA of Greater Erie. Becoming a member of the Heritage Club requires a commitment, which now or in the future will add to the Y’s endowment fund. 

The following individuals have made a lasting investment in our community through their commitment to the YMCA Endowment Fund. Below is a partial list of members, as some prefer to remain anonymous.
