Opportunities to Give

Why We Fundraise

Our YMCA raises funds each year to ensure that people of all ages in our community have the opportunity to participate in YMCA programs and services.  

These programs and services positively impact the lives of all people. They are about more than physical activity, child care or community programs; they are about developing friendships, building self-esteem and having access to a safe, nurturing environment that empowers everyone to be their best!  

Supporting our YMCA helps to build a stronger community overall because our programs address the broad parameters of heath. To learn more about this, please check out our Strategic Plan and Annual Report.

Annually, more than 800 local people receive financial assistance to ease the cost of YMCA membership for them or their family, and requests for support come in every day. Each year we must raise approximately $75,000 to ensure our YMCA remains accessible to all. By donating today, you help ensure that our YMCA will always be ready to offer that assistance to people in need. Gifts of $25 or more receive a tax receipt.
