Why give to the Y? It’s not just a donation, it’s an investment in your family, your neighbors, and your community.
At the Y, we believe no child should be turned away due to the cost of programming. This is why we offer extensive Financial Assistance, through the Y Cares Program, to all families in need. Our Annual Campaign supports the Y Cares Program and ensures every child has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
Your support translates to life-changing programs for those in our community who need it most. From preschool to wellness for older adults, no other organization can impact as many, as powerfully, as the Y does every day.
ABOUT Y CARES
Y Cares provides scholarships to local children and families in need so they can experience Y programs and services such as child care, before and after school care, day camp, dance & arts, sports, swimming, enrichment and more – regardless of their ability to pay. Over the past three years, the Y has provided more than $2 million dollars in financial assistance to more than 10,000 local children, adults and families. Everyone is welcome; our goal is to not turn anyone away due to inability to pay.
