Legacy Giving

The YMCA was established in 1844 by a drapery clerk called George Williams and he left us with the legacy of the YMCA. Initially this was a small support group set up to help fulfil the spiritual and educational needs of young working men in London. Today it is one of the largest youth welfare organisations working with thousands of young people every day the world over.  Over the years the YMCA has reached out to countless young men and women. It is well known that in both World Wars the YMCA provided vital support to soldiers posted far from home with their tea wagons, note paper and a warm smile.

We need help to maintain and develop our work so that we can ensure that Bath YMCA is there to reach future generations of young people and communities in need. By leaving a legacy gift in your will help us meet these needs.

No matter how large or small your legacy gift, it will be used in full to support our charitable work. We are in the unique position that our trading company covers all our central costs, therefore your legacy is used in its entirety to support vulnerable members of society. A gift of any size will make a difference.

The main thing to include in your will is our full name, registered office address and the registered charity number as follows:

International House
Broad Street Place

Charity Number : 1106370
