Give Life to Your Legacy

Advance the Kingdom with Creative Giving

We are passionate about sharing Jesus with young people...

Why? Because we are convinced it is only through the life-changing power of the Holy Spirit that we can successfully navigate the difficulties we all inevitably face.

We are also committed to helping people of all ages be good stewards of the blessings we've received, for as the Bible says, "freely you have received; freely give" (Matthew 10:8)

Central Ohio Youth for Christ can help you plan for your future, and share your blessings with others for years to come, through our LEGACY GIVING program.

The Mary Brubaker Story

One day in 1988, the COYFC Board of Trustees met to discuss a crucial topic -- should they close the chapter for good. Finances were bleak. It seemed the only option. But no one wanted to end YFC’s outreach to at-risk teens. So the Board decided to take the night to pray and meet again the next evening.

The next day a special check arrived from the estate of Mary Brubaker for $50,000 – enough to pay off the debt and keep the doors open. But one question loomed – Who is Mary Brubaker? No one knew her. Yet because she had included YFC in her estate plan, our chapter remains open and vibrant to this day.

We want to give YFC friends the opportunity to support kingdom work through your estate like Mary did, and to be a part of the Mary Brubaker Giving Program. Our Legacy Giving Department will help you with your estate planning needs, from helping you complete a basic will to a comprehensive and personalized estate plan. We will help you share your heart with others long after you have entered eternity. Contact us today to begin this process.
