Ways to Give

From exercise to education, from healthy bodies to hunger prevention, from preschool to preventive health, the Y doesn’t just strengthen our bodies. It strengthens our community. Our community faces new challenges that create a greater need than ever for the work we do every day. Fortunately, where some see obstacles, we see opportunities for our members, volunteers, and staff to make a difference.

Yet we’re called to do so much more. What if we could harness all of that power to make an even greater difference on a bigger scale?

No other organization can impact as many people as powerfully as we do every day. But we need your support to make it happen. Together, we can achieve so much more.

Give today, for a better us

Why give

People need certain things to thrive. We need to eat well, stay safe, be active, spend time together, learn, and grow. Sadly, it’s not always easy to get what we need. But, where society falls short, the Y steps in.

After 160 years of serving communities, the Y knows what we need to be our best selves. So, it gives us a place to play, to learn, to be healthy, to eat well, and give back. It gives parents child care, young adults job training and children a safe place to go. Everything the Y does is in service of making us better.

For a better you. For a better community. For a better us.

We are so grateful to these donors for keeping the Y accessible to everyone.
