Make An Impact

The YMCA is a charity dedicated to Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility. Staff and volunteers work side by side to make sure that everyone regardless of age, income or background has the opportunity to learn grow and thrive. We depend on charitable dollars to make this happen. 

Contributions to our Annual Campaign provide membership assistance and scholarship support so kids and adults can be part of our YMCAs. It also supports a number of programs that we deliver to the community at little or no cost including Teen Achievers, Music Clubhouse LiveStrong, Leaders Club, Youth In Government and many more.By investing in our kids, our health and our neighbors, we strengthen our community. 

Whether it’s providing 350 children a safe and nurturing classroom to learn and thrive, supporting over 500 kids in our teen programs or teaching 8000 children water safety in swim lessons at the YMCA, we provide high quality programs and services to our community. With you support we can continue to make these and many other programs accessible to those in need.
