How You Can Help
Good things come together when we work together to build a stronger community. At the Y, we believe that EVERYONE – regardless of age, income or background – deserves the opportunity to live life to its fullest, happiest, healthiest potential. Seeing members like you support one another is the GREATEST GIFT we can imagine. When you make a gift to the Y, it goes to support another person, possibly much like you, who also values the benefit of a healthy lifestyle, safe childcare, or maybe even the opportunity for their child to receive swim lessons or be part of team when they couldn’t otherwise afford it. Your support of our mission could be life-changing to the person next to you. If you are in the position to support another Y family in our community through a donation of any size, please consider the difference that we can make when we all come together.
Remember, your membership fees keep the lights on at the Y, but the generosity of our donors, volunteers, members and other supporters ensure our doors stay open to all the children and families who need our services. Our annual campaign raises over $200,000 each year so we can provide kids with scholarships to attend summer camp, preschool, after school care or enjoy youth sports.

Everyone has heard of the YMCA, but few know how much we do. We do more than strengthen bodies – we strengthen communities. We’re a cause dedicated to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. With programs and services built on the core values of Respect, Responsibility, Honesty and Caring, no organization impacts our society as much as the Y. Together with supporters like you, we provide “scholarships” of nearly $300,000 each year to underserved members of our community. We take pride in the fact we don’t turn people away because of inability to pay.
Our annual campaign raises money to benefit children and families in our community. Where society falls short, the Y steps in. And you can help as an ambassador, fundraiser, donor and volunteer.
Our fundraising priorities include:
1. Safe Childcare for working families; this includes Preschool, Afterschool and Summer Camp
2. Swimming programs to make all kids safe in the water
3. Health and Wellness memberships and programming for people of all ages
4. Youth Development; from Youth Sports to Youth in Government, we are dedicated to helping children and teens grow into community leaders
