The Annual Fund is the YMCA’s most important fundraising vehicle and is crucial to the YMCA’s economic stability. Most YMCA members are surprised to find that membership dues and program fees do not cover the cost of operating the YMCA. Membership dues and program fees cover approximately 70% of the cost to operate the YMCA.

Our Annual Fund Drive efforts are designed to:
A Promise Kept
As a charity, the YMCA puts its mission, “To put Christian values into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all,” at the forefront of all its activities. Our commitment to living our charitable mission each and every day keeps us strong and focused. Although grounded in our historical values, the YMCA continues to search for and collaborate on new solutions to our communities changing needs.
Blessed by the generosity of so many people in our communities, your YMCA supports families in balancing the pressures of busy lifestyles and welcomes each unique individual with healthy activities, valuable family time and programs instilling strong values in our children.
The Y: A Safe and Nurturing Place
Not everyone is born with the resources to succeed. Many people across the country are made to feel invisible because of environmental circumstance. But the truth is, all people are capable of greatness. All communities are filled with beauty. And the Y is dedicated to helping people grow.
