---- — The Southeastern Indiana YMCA recognized those in the community who have chosen to help preserve the legacy of the Y for future generations at a Heritage Club luncheon on June 10. Honorees of the Y’s Heritage Club became members through lifetime endowments or planned gifts. The income from their investments will be used to ensure the quality and longevity of the Y continues.
Guest speaker, John Corya, former Decatur County Family YMCA and YMCA of the USA national Board of Directors member, spoke passionately about the accomplishments and history of the YMCA nationally and internationally. Corya shared some of the ups and downs that the Decatur County Family YMCA has experienced in their 100 years of existence, and how much their endowment program has helped them during their financial struggles. He encouraged other participants to become involved in the Heritage Club program to ensure the YMCA can continue to strengthen the community.
Heritage Club funds differ from annual campaign donations because they will be invested and the returns will be used for future funding based on the wishes of the donor. The Annual Campaign covers current costs and initiatives and is expended immediately. The Southeastern Indiana YMCA has proudly served the community around Batesville for over 20 years. The Heritage Club is a way to recognize those donors who, through current or planned gifts, have made the choice to ensure that the tradition of caring, respect, responsibility and quality programs will be here for future generations.
