Beyond providing a rich camp experience for today’s campers, we seek to lay the foundation for those who come after us. By providing a legacy gift, you ensure Camp Widjiwagan's future.

What is a legacy gift?

Legacy donors make their gifts by designating Camp Widjiwagan's YMCA Foundation of Middle Tennessee fund as a beneficiary of their estate.

Your legacy gift helps us ensure campers from all walks of life will be able to enjoy a summer camp experience or sustain Camp operations in perpetuity.

How you can pledge your legacy gift

  • Bequests — Upon the execution of your living will, we will receive a portion as a beneficiary of your estate.
  • Gift Annuities — Purchase a charitable gift annuity, and receive regular income for the rest of your life. The remainder can be designated to the YMCA Foundation’s Camp Widjiwagan Fund.
  • Charitable Trusts — You invest into a trust, and we receive either the trust’s principal or its income as a donation after/during a pre-determined time period.
  • Beneficiary Designations — You designate The YMCA Foundation of Middle Tennessee Camp Widjiwagan Fund as a beneficiary of your life insurance, retirement fund, pension plan or bank account.
