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% DONATION STAYS AT YOUR Y
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.
