NEW VISION We welcomed new leadership in 2017 after the retirement of long-time CEO Hal Welsh. Mike Brown stepped into the role in November, after a comprehensive, volunteerled national search by the YMCA of Greater Syracuse Metro Board of Directors, with assistance from the YMCA of the USA.

“I am honored to have been chosen to lead the YMCA of Greater Syracuse and continue to build upon the legacy of Hal Welsh.”

Mike came to Syracuse from the YMCA of Rock River Valley in Rockford, Illinois. As CEO, he led that organization through significant growth from 2011 to 2017, increasing the annual operating budget from $7M to $12.5M. Brown also led that association’s efforts in increasing annual giving to the Y from $350,000 to $1.1 million and oversaw the addition of the new Puri Family YMCA to the sixbranch Rock River Valley YMCA. Originally from California, Brown has over 25 years of service with Ys around the country, including Houston and Georgia. Brown is also an adjunct professor for both Springfield College and Judson University, with current work as a PHD in Public Service Leadership with a concentration in Non-Profit Leadership. “I am honored to have been chosen to lead the YMCA of Greater Syracuse and continue to build upon the legacy of Hal Welsh,” said Brown.

THE ABOVE QUOTE EPITOMIZES the mission of the YMCA of Greater Syracuse, and the endless possibilities that exist, as we aim to relentlessly serve this community, ensuring all its citizens thrive and reach their full potential. When I arrived in Syracuse seven months ago, it was very clear that our programs and services change lives and give our members and participants hope for a brighter future. Whether we’re striving to close the achievement and opportunity gap or increasing water safety skills or working to combat chronic diseases or engaging our active older adults, the lives of the child, adults and families we serve are being transformed. We are building strength in spirit, mind and body within the diverse communities we serve. As the new President & CEO of the YMCA of Greater Syracuse, my focus will be on the future of our downtown facility, growing and expanding our programs and services to serve more people, and continuing to forge partnerships and collaborations with many organizations and businesses in this great community to further expand our reach and impact. As an organization, our promise is to continue working for you and to make a difference you can see. Thank you for your support of our cause and mission to strengthen the Greater Syracuse community. When we unite together as a community, our vision for a stronger Greater Syracuse community becomes possible for all. TOGETHER, WE TRANSFORM LIVES—FOR A BETTER US.



YMCA of Greater Syracuse

If we want healthier communities, we need to build a bridge between clinical and community approaches.


ost efforts to improve health have been focused on a health care system designed to treat injury or disease, rather than on the community-level factors that can prevent illness. At the same time, attempts to address healthy living at the community level have not fully engaged our health care system. If we want healthier communities, we need to build a bridge between clinical and community approaches.

Locally, the YMCA of Greater Syracuse is a pioneer for Ys around the country because of our partnership with HealtheConnections. When a doctor identifies a patient at risk for developing diabetes, they can choose our Y via HealtheConnections’ health information exchange system and directly refer the patient to connect them with our program. Additionally, our staff can communicate securely and directly with the doctor via the system, ensuring HIPAA compliance.

“Community Integrated Health” aims to strengthen the relationships between traditional health care systems and community-based organizations, like the YMCA, in order to help all community members live their healthiest lives.

The YMCA of Greater Syracuse is the only Y in the country to have a relationship of this nature using the health information exchange system. We’re working to increase access to our other chronic disease prevention programs, making it easier for clinicians to refer patients in need to our community-based programs focused on healthy living.

The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program helps overweight adults at risk for type 2 diabetes reduce their risk for developing the disease by taking steps that will improve their overall health and well-being. The program provides a supportive environment where participants work together to achieve the program goals of reducing individual weight by 7% and building up to 150 minutes of moderate (the equivalent of brisk walking) physical activity per week for the purpose of reducing their risk for developing diabetes.

We live our healthiest lives when we have access to nutritious food, affordable housing and health care, quality education, clean air, and safe communities where we can actively live, work, and play. We’re proud to be an innovator here in Syracuse, making access to healthy lifestyles easier for all.




he Y believes that every kid deserves the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. Through the YMCA of Greater Syracuse, thousands of youth today are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement. This impact is seen throughout the year, but especially during the summer, when our camp programs, water safety and educational programs are in full swing.


YMCA of Greater Syracuse

CAMP During the 2017 summer, we served kids in over 8800 sessions across a variety of camp programs in our branches and in the community. Camp Iroquois, our day camp near Manlius, had children attending 1675 sessions and our branch camps had over 4200 sessions across our association. Our arts camps had almost 500 sessions, including an offsite program at Stone Quarry Art Park. Each of these sessions represents a child that needs a safe place to learn, grow and thrive, often while parents and caregivers are working. Activities at our many camps include: swimming, boating, arts and crafts, fine arts, horseback riding, field trips, archery, sports, team building and character development activities. Campers at the Y learn how to be responsible and resourceful. They work in groups, solve problems and make decisions that help them grow as individuals.

SAFETY AROUND WATER In the summer alone, we ran over 2200 swim lesson sessions at our East, North and Northwest branches. Our Safety Around Water/Urban Swim Initiative program helped 120 kids in the city of Syracuse learn how to stay safe in and around the water. Additionally, over 900 swimsuits were distributed at six different sites to kids and their families.

POWER SCHOLARS ACADEMY™ Our Y Power Scholars Academy™ program expanded to Wilson, Burnet and Schiller Parks, helping 58 students improve their educational readiness and engagement. Our scholars increase their literacy and math skills, helping them avoid summer learning loss. The program also helps strengthen self-confidence, social-emotional development, and physical health and well-being. With the support of generous donors and volunteers and our skilled staff, we’re continuing to make a big impact on kids in our community in the summer.

Over 3750 kids benefit from before and after school programming through Y

T I R I P S E TH OF GIVING IN MY ROLE as the Director of Philanthropy here at the Y, I get to meet people who have benefited from our charitable work. They have the most amazing and inspiring stories of how the Y has changed, or even saved, their lives. But I’d like to take this opportunity to also share the equally important story of you—our Y donor and supporters. In most cases, you will never meet the people you help through your generosity. Yet you are fiercely dedicated to our cause and understand the direct impact your giving has on others. Beyond financial support, you provide the most important gift of all—hope. Why is hope important? Because life is difficult and full of challenges. As a Y supporter, your caring spirit eases those challenges and makes life better for so many. For children like “Mr. D”. I met Mr. D this past summer at Schiller Park where he was attending our Power Scholars Academy program. Mr. D always had a big smile for me and an ever bigger hug. I felt grateful to be part of a program that was not only helping to stop summer learning loss, but where Mr. D could laugh, have fun and enjoy the learning process provided by caring and supportive Y certified teachers.

“being a part of the Water Divas has quite literally saved my life”. These are just two Y stories that motivated and encouraged me in my role raising charitable support for our Y—and there are thousands! Combined with the tremendous support of our donors, my work at the Y inspires me to be more giving in my own life.

Over 2600 donors helped raise $1.7M in support for the Y

I am most certainly humbled by the generosity our donors extend each and every day. On behalf of myself, the Y staff, and the people we serve, I extend our gratitude and appreciation to you, our donors, for being caring, giving and loving people who lift out your hand, and your hearts, to others who need it.

••• Volunteers provided over 6700 hours of service

Thank you! Mara Roberts Director of Philanthropy

And for Jane Haas who spoke at this year’s Annual Campaign kick-off. She lost both her husband and sister and her grief was overwhelming. She was isolating herself and despondent. Yet at our East Area Family YMCA she found compassion, support and friendship, and our group of “Water Divas” was born. Jane shared that

Director of Philanthropy Mara Roberts, East Area Y Board Member Patricia Woodcock and Associate Director of Development Kelly Carinci, raising support for the Y at our Ladies Tea event.

Beyond financial support, you provide the most important gift of all—hope. 2017–2018 ANNUAL REPORT


E R U T L U A C OF GIV ING AT THE Y, we work side by side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone—regardless of age, income or background— has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. Our work wouldn’t be possible without our donors. We’re especially grateful to the following, who made leadership gifts of $1,000 or more. They join a circle of supporters founded in 2005 to honor the memory of Dick Besse, a philanthropist, longstanding member and leader of the YMCA of Greater Syracuse. Over several decades, Dick gave generously to advance our mission. Besse Society members are recognized year-round in each YMCA branch.

“I LOVE HOW THE Y HAS BUILT UP HIS CONFIDENCE.” “THE ONLY CONCERN I HAD about joining the Y was what the price would be.” Samantha Bergeron shares, “As a single parent with a single income, I was worried.”

Over $44,000 in assistance allows over 200 children the chance to experience camp

Thanks to Membership For All, the Y made belonging easy for Sam and her son, Drake. “The Y has changed us in a positive way. I couldn’t ask for a better place for Drake to learn all of these amazing skills. Not just swimming or basketball, but also how to be a team player and how to make and socialize with friends. I love how the Y has built up his confidence. I couldn’t be prouder of how far he’s come!”

Over $67k in support helped our Power Scholars Academy™ scholars achieve math and reading gains one month greater than the national average last summer!
