The Johnson County YMCA Foundation was formed on June 30, 1984 to provide an endowment fund to ensure the Y would have the financial support it would need in future years to strengthen community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

The Foundation works to transform gifts from caring individuals and families into meaningful and lasting positive change for our community. While we accept gifts of cash, securities and other assets, much of our endowment fund's growth is the result of planned gifts. The Foundation is enriched when it is named as a beneficiary of a donor's will, insurance policy, retirement plan or trust.

Income generated by the Foundation's endowment funds is poured back into Johnson County in the form of YMCA facilities, programs and services our community needs in order to thrive—both now and in the future. Over the past three decades, the Foundation has provided over $1,250,000 in funds that have been used to help nurture the potential of kids, ensure our community's health and well-being, and support neighbors in need.

The Foundation is a symbol to the community that the YMCA is a flourishing organization that will always serve Johnson County.
