White Columns Society

What is the White Columns Society?

The White Columns Society is a very special group of people who have chosen to have a lasting impact on YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly by generously making or planning future gifts to YMCA Blue Ridge’s endowment fund. The Society includes those who have made an endowment or planned gift to YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly of at least $5,000, and/or those who have purchased a Columbarium niche. 

 

The Society will meet annually in March to enjoy the fellowship of new and old members, to find inspiration in YMCA Blue Ridge's work and to receive updates on programs assisted through the endowment. White Columns Society members also benefit by knowing that their legacy will continue through programs that are important to them and future generations will be positively impacted.
