A strong endowment is the financial foundation of any organization. This is particularly true at YMCA Camp Sea Gull and YMCA Camp Seafarer where our endowment provides a stream of income to the operating budget each year and gives us the ability to plan and make strategic decisions with financial security.
Camp's unrestricted endowment income is combined with earnings from restricted named endowments and works in tandem with the Camp Annual Campaign to ensure funds are available to:
By helping to grow Camp's endowment, you aren’t just helping Camp Sea Gull and Camp Seafarer this year or next; you are helping to ensure that the traditions, purpose and commitment to excellence will influence and enhance the lives of campers for generations to come.
All gifts must comply with the YMCA of the Triangle gift acceptance policy
Donors may set up individually named funds in honor or memory of a loved one and the funds may be either unrestricted or designated for a specific purpose
A commitment of at least $50,000 is required in order to establish a new named fund
The Finance and Investment Committees of the YMCA of the Triangle’s Board of Directors oversee the management of the assets. The committee members are YMCA volunteers with strong backgrounds in finance and fiscal management. The overall Endowment Fund is managed by Raymond James.
