Annual Fund Drive 2017 GOAL: $110,000

When you donate to your YMCA, you’re investing in your community. Your support provides opportunities for people to improve their health and build a sense of community, for our most vulnerable young people to get the care and support they need, and for kids to develop into smart, resilient adults.

How far your dollars can go:

$100: Two low-income kids gain water safety skills and confidence.

$250: Five three-month memberships for local shelter individuals.

$500: A family learns healthy habits through the ACT! Program.

$1,000: Three low-income families can enjoy the Y with financial assistance.

$2,000: Two inner city, low-income youth can experience overnight camp.
