Our YMCA has committed to significantly increasing our impact in the Gateway Region by serving more people, innovating and improving programs, and ensuring we have purposefully designed spaces to support generations to come.
We've identified these three focus areas that will help us reach our goal to ensure all youth and families in our region have the resources needed to succeed.
Bridging the Opportunity Gap
Cultivating Health Equity
Expanded Reach through Capital Campaign
Across the Gateway Region, we have identified areas of opportunity to reach out to growing neighborhoods within our region.
The Y is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) charity that works side-by-side with our neighbors every day to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. One of the ways we do that is by providing financial assistance to children, adults and families who may be unable to afford a membership or participation in our programs. The Y counts on the generous donations from the public to ensure everyone has the opportunity to participate in our services.
When you give to the Y, you’re doing your part to strengthen our community—and a strong community is good for everyone. Whether you’re helping a child in need attend summer camp, giving someone the assistance they need to make a healthy change in their life, or contributing to the construction of a new Y facility, your gift will let us continue to affect positive change in our region.
