The generosity of others is at the core of the Y’s existence as a nonprofit. It is only through the support of our hundreds of thousands of volunteers and public and private donors that we are able to support and give back to the communities we engage.
As a leading nonprofit committed to strengthening community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y was created in response to social challenges and remains to this day a lifeline in communities around the world. The Y understands the challenges that keep individuals from reaching their full potential and responds with services and support which help people to be self-reliant, productive and connected to the community. Each Y responds to the unique issues influencing the community and provides support through services focused on critical areas, such as child welfare, community health, job training, environmental education, quality of life or family services.
Funds raised through the Y’s Annual Campaign provide opportunities for families and children in our communities to participate in YMCA programs such as summer camp, aquatics, health and wellness, swim team and sports. Through the generous support and contributions of staff and volunteers, we are able to provide scholarships to over 250 families.
