Through your donation to the YMCA Strong Kids and Communities Campaign, you can: Strengthen a family by helping to provide safe, fun and supervised before - or afterschool care. Teach a child a new skill such as swimming or sports or arts.

Help Open Our Doors to More We believe that every child and adult deserves the experience of YMCA programs, regardless of the financial difficulties they might be facing. YMCA programs such as child care, camping, swim lessons, youth sports, membership and teen leadership do more than teach skills or keep someone healthy. They provide confidence. They teach responsibility. They enable our friends to be strong in spirit, mind and body. These experiences stick with kids‌and help adults through tough times like the loss of a job.

We Won’t Turn a Deserving Friend Away Please consider a tax-deductible donation to the YMCA Strong Kids and Communities Campaign. Your support allows the YMCA to provide over $1,200,000 to 8,000 neighbors in membership and program assistance every year. Your generosity makes a genuine difference in your community.
