Strong Communities Campaign

Strong Communities Campaign

Our Community relies on the YMCA, and the YMCA relies on dedicated donors like you. Our fiscal year is coming to an end and we need your support. You can make a difference. 

Help us reach our goal by March 31, 2024:


Only one month of our fiscal year remains and we are approximately $16,000 away from our goal. Keep your eyes peeled on social media to see our special donation display including many stories from donors and members at our Health, Fitness and Aquatics facility.

Reasons to Give:

  • The YMCA is a charity – we give back to our communities!
  • This fiscal year we have already provided over $100,000 in Financial Assistance.
  • 930 people requested financial assistance in 2023.
  • Your donation can be a turning point in someone’s life.

There are many ways to support someone in need: 

  1. Donate online (monthly or one-time) by clicking the button below
  2. Take part in our Strong Communities Challenge (read more below)
  3. Donate in person by cash, debit or credit at our Welcome Desk in the YMCA Health, Fitness & Aquatics facility.

Strong Communities Challenge

We challenge you to make a difference in your community!

Support a family in need.
