Committed to Our Community
The Heritage Club recognizes donors who have made a planned gift to the YMCA Foundation of Middle Tennessee. The Foundation is honored to have more than 500 individuals who have left a lasting legacy by including the YMCA in their estate plans.
For members of the Heritage Club, a charitable bequest or other estate gift to the Foundation passes on their family's values and ensures the Y serves other families for years to come. Their lasting impact has helped make the YMCA of Middle Tennessee what it is today.
H.G. Hill Jr. Philanthropic Award
Each year, we invite all Heritage Club members to a special dinner to recognize a deserving donor with the H.G. Hill Jr. Philanthropic Award, the club's highest honor.
Generously sponsored by the H.G. Hill Realty Company, the award perpetuates the memory of H.G. Hill Jr. who served as Chairman of the YMCA Board of Directors from 1950 to 1953 and again from 1965 to 1967. H.G. Hill was an instrumental leader to the YMCA of Middle Tennessee for more than 50 years.
