YMCA of Greater Charlotte

The Y. So Much Moreā„¢

The Y is a charity, dedicated to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. With programs from A to Z - like athletics to advocacy, dance classes to disease prevention, volleyball to volunteerism - we don't just strengthen individuals, we strengthen an entire community.

Yet there is so much more to do. Every day, our Greater Charlotte community faces new challenges that create a greater need for the work we do – challenges like the academic achievement gap, obesity and social isolation. Fortunately, where some see obstacles, we see opportunities for our members, volunteers, staff, and generous donors like you to make a difference.

Together, we will make our community stronger by focusing on three priorities:   

Inspiring Kids

Improving Health & Well-being

Ensuring access

Driving academic achievement

Tackling our community's greatest health challenges

Ensuring access and inclusion

Now, when you think of your YMCA you'll know it's more than just a gym…it's a cause. A cause, that, with your generous support, will continue to strengthen the community in which you live. 

Give. And Do So Much More.

Charitable gifts made to the YMCA of Greater Charlotte represent a gift to the entire YMCA mission. To help the most number of people in need, the YMCA uses donations where they can do the most good by pooling them together to strengthen the entire community. Because your gift is helping the YMCA provide life-transforming programs to adults and children, your gift is tax deductible.
