For nearly a century, the YMCA Retirement Fund has provided a safe way for YMCA professionals to plan for and secure their future. As we confront many challenges due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we want to assure our participants and retirees that we are committed to supporting you. We understand that you may have questions, and we are dedicated to providing the best possible service and resources to you. YOUR RETIREMENT SAVINGS ARE SECURE Although the global financial markets continue to experience volatility, your retirement savings are protected. Participant account balances are secure and have not decreased, and our retirees will continue to receive their monthly annuity payments on time. Our investment team strives to maintain a diversified portfolio and manages the assets of the Fund’s portfolio for the long term in order to withstand short-term market volatility. Throughout our nearly 100-year history, the Fund has persevered during good and bad economic times, including the Great Depression, two world wars, 9/11, and the Great Financial Crisis of 2008-2009. We are confident that the Fund will weather this storm.
