The Annual Campaign will run February 7 – March 31!

The Annual Campaign ensures that the Y is here for all, regardless of the ability to pay. We are changing lives through childcare programs, youth sports, volunteer opportunities, senior activities and community service. From every person who walks through the door with a membership card to the children who learn how to swim in our pool, we are more than just a gym. We are a family. We are a community.

How will my donation be used?

Donations to the Annual Campaign are used to fund the Y’s financial assistance programs for those who cannot afford to pay the full price for Y programs and services. In addition, the campaign provides money for the establishment of new programs and will assist with the day-to-day operations of the Y including building maintenance and improvements.

Why should I give to the Annual Campaign? I already pay for membership and program fees.

Membership and program fees are established to offset the direct costs of delivering YMCA programs and services to our members and program participants. Annual Campaign donations are used to provide scholarships to those who cannot afford the full cost of membership or program registration. All scholarships are awarded on a financial need-based scale.

I am not a member of the YMCA. Why should I give?

The YMCA provides the community with quality programs that help children, teens, families and seniors live healthy lives. The YMCA also gives back to the community every year with various fundraisers and service projects. We value our community and strongly believe it is our social responsibility to help all walks of life, regardless if they are a member or not.

Can I designate my donation to a particular program?

Yes, you can choose to have your donation to be applied wherever it is most needed or if you are connected to a particular program and prefer your donation be used there, just indicate how you would like your donation used.

Is my donation tax-deductible?

Yes, the YMCA is classified by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization. As such, all charitable gifts received during the Annual Campaign are tax-deductible.
