Planned Giving

You have experienced and supported 92Y’s mission to connect the world and change lives through ideas, instruction, and the arts. You have visited our stages and classrooms over the years to learn more about yourself and your community. Thanks to your support, we have touched more than 300,000 lives through our programs.

Have you considered ways to increase the lasting impact of your support so that future generations can benefit from the 92Y programs you have experienced? The 1874 society could be your answer.

Formerly known as 92Y Partners, The 1874 Society is named after the group of 12 individuals who founded 92Y during that year. The Society enables you to integrate your family’s financial planning goals with your charitable giving activities as a way to continue the legacy left by 92Y’s founders—while leaving one of your own.

All bequests, regardless of size, will be gladly accepted and used to support 92Y’s stability and global community outreach. Society members are invited to attend special events at 92Y throughout the season.

In addition to leaving your personal legacy at 92Y, being an 1874 Society member may enable you to realize the following financial benefits:

  • Increase your income
  • Reduce your taxes
  • Provide personal protection during times of financial uncertainty
  • Create a new, lifetime income source

1874 Society members can choose from six basic ways to give:

  • Naming 92Y in your will
  • Establishing a charitable lead trust
  • Creating a charitable gift annuity
  • Naming 92Y as a beneficiary of a life insurance plan
  • Make 92Y a beneficiary of your retirement plan
  • Give to 92Y through a Roth IRA
