Endowment and Planned Giving


Since its beginning in 1922 YMCA Camp Cosby has been committed to youth development and to helping every child reach their greatest potential. Campers are empowered to take on life’s opportunities as confident, caring, responsible, honest young people of strong character . We are able to accomplish this because camp, like no other place, creates the ideal environment to positively engage children and help them grow.

To ensure this legacy continues, the YMCA Camp Cosby Endowment Fund allows for generations to come and is a significant, growing part of the long term financial support needed to ensure quality camp operations and experiences well into the future.

We would love to talk to you about our Endowment Fund, or making a planned estate gift.  Please call Steve Merifield at 256 268 2007.
