Join the Mission – Give Today


The YMCA relies on the generosity of our community to ensure that every individual regardless of age, income or background, has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive. We believe that transformational change occurs when we work together and invest in our community.

We’ve always been more than just a gym and swim by filling gaps and supporting urgent needs in our community. From water safety to safe spaces, we unite volunteers, participants and neighbors. By supporting the Y, you help ensure that everyone, regardless of their circumstance or ability to pay, can benefit from the life-changing programs in the Y. 

Our Funding Priorities Include: 

  • Minimizing the academic Achievement Gap 
  • Making Kids of All Ages Safe In and Around Water 
  • Helping Teens Become Leaders 
  • Providing Inclusive and Safe Spaces in our Y’s for all 

Legacy Giving

Legacy gifts (endowments and gifts from estates) help sustain and strengthen our Y’s ability to serve our community for generations to come. Whether you put your donation to work today or after your lifetime, you are making a lasting impact on the lives of kids, adults and families who need us most. With your help, we can continue addressing our community’s most critical needs and delivering high-impact programs that change lives. 

Legacy gifts to support the Y can be made through estate planning, retirement and IRA accounts, trusts, stock, insurance, real estate or endowment giving. With endowment funds supporting each of our branches and major areas of focus, we have a long history of fiscal responsibility and stewardship.
