YMCA Emergency Staff Relief Fund – Make A Gift


The past weeks have been like no other for our YMCA. We have been challenged to manage the extraordinary impact this global crisis has on our business and our ability to serve our community. Yet, despite the challenges, stories of hope and resiliency already emerge.

Team members have rallied to take care of each other and our members; donors are stepping up in a big way; and our Y is flexing to offer access to childcare for families of emergency service providers and healthcare personnel.

As the Y, this is who we are – we work to stand up for those we care about when our community needs us most. Today that means supporting our Y team members who are most deeply impacted by the suspension of our branch and camp operations.

The YMCA Emergency Staff Relief Fund has been established to provide critical assistance for our team during this time of unparalleled need.

Contributions to the fund will provide our furloughed Y team members with access to financial resources designated to support immediate and essential needs, primarily housing, medical and transportation.

Please join our Y’s most loyal friends, donors, senior leaders and board members by giving to support our Y team members who need us most.

Give today by choosing “Emergency Staff Relief Fund” from the “Gift Supports” dropdown menu.

Teaching children how to be safe around water is not a luxury, it is a necessity. Three children die each day from drowning. What's harder to believe is that 88% of youth drowning incidents occur under adult supervision.
