The Y is for all. We make sure that everyone, no matter their age, gender, race or ability, is welcomed as part of the Y family.

We offer financial assistance to local individuals and families who cannot afford the benefits of Y programming and membership… at the Y, no one is turned away due to their inability to pay.

Every dollar you donate to the Annual Campaign affects all of us in the best possible way: through after school care, swim lessons, health & wellness, diabetes prevention, summer camps, teen leadership, family activities, child care, youth sports, senior social hours, and, of course, financial assistance that ensures our doors are always open for everyone, including those most in need.

100% of your donation directly supports financial assistance and program subsidies for your friends, neighbors and members of the Y community. Thank you for joining a cause bigger than yourself!

Here’s What Your Gift Can Do:

A $50 donation to the Y will help two kids discover themselves through swimming, gymnastics, or youth sports.

A $100 donation to the Y will help a child gain new skills and confidence at one week of summer camp at Camp Mac Boykin.

A $250 donation to the Y will provide a senior adult with a membership to exercise and have crucial social interaction with their peers and others.

A $500 donation to the Y will help an entire team of kids learn new skills, sportsmanship and values through youth sports.

A $1000 donation to the Y will provide afterschool care opportunities for an entire school year, giving them a safe, fun and healthy environment to learn, grow and thrive.
