A Gift That Gives Back

When you give to the Y, you make a meaningful difference in your community.

With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, strengthening communities is our cause. At the Y, we believe that lasting personal and social change happens when we all work together. Every day we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.

The YMCA is a not-for-profit organization that puts Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. 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 Capital Campaign, your gift will let us continue to affect positive change in our community.

“The Y is more than just a place for me to work out...it has been therapeutic for me in the sense that I feel I’m part of a family. The emotional support has made the Y a ‘home away from home’ for me.”
 - Valparaiso Family YMCA Member
