WHY GIVE?

 

Countless people know and depend on the Y, but the Y is so much more than many people realize. In addition to being the place children learn to swim or adults go for their daily workout, the Y responds to the needs of our community. We’re dedicated to nurturing the potential of every child and teen, improving the community’s health and well-being, and giving back and providing support to our neighbors. Our community needs the connection and mental, physical, and emotional well-being the YMCA provides.

 

As a non-profit, mission-based organization, the YMCA has a responsibility to reconnect our community, but we can’t do it alone. Our goal for 2022 is to raise $100,000 to support our scholarship program, Safety Around Water, EnhanceFitness, and other programs that support our mission.

 

FIND WHAT MATTERS MOST.
