As a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, the Y relies on donations by current and past Y members, business owners, and caring people in our community to keep the Y healthy and growing. Please help us help kids and families right here in our community by making a donation to the Y. It is one of the best investments in our community – and in the future of our children – that you can make!


100% of Your Donation Stays
at Your Local YMCA

Although we are an association, 100% of your donation stays at the YMCA branch you donate to. We know it is important for you to help individuals and families within your local community and your YMCA wants to keep your impact as close to home as possible. By keeping 100% of your donation at your YMCA branch we are able to achieve those goals.


Everyone is Welcome

The Y welcomes all who wish to participate and believes that no one should be denied access to the Y based on their inability to pay full price. Through our Y Community Scholarship Program, the Y provides assistance to youth, adults, and families based on individual needs and circumstances. Every Y member receives the same membership benefits, regardless of whether or not they receive financial assistance. Y members can feel confident knowing that they are part of an organization that cares greatly for the well-being of people.


The Essence of the Y

With a commitment to nurturing the potential of kids and adults, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility. The YMCA of the Chippewa Valley ensures that every individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow, and thrive.

Chippewa Falls YMCA Annual Campaign

Invest in your community. Every donation given to the Annual Campaign provides support to individuals and families in Chippewa County. Last year, 1 in 5 YMCA members received scholarships to be part of our community. Because of the Annual Campaign, we are able to provide sponsored membership and discounted programming to individuals and families in Chippewa County who otherwise could not afford it.

We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. At camp, thousands of youth are cultivating the values, skills, and relationships that lead to positive behaviors and achievement — right now and in the future.

John & Fay Menard YMCA Tennis Center Donation

Make an impact in the tennis community by giving a gift to the John & Fay Menard YMCA Tennis Center.
