How you can help


Annual Strong Y Campaign


It is the philosophy of the YMCA that those who can afford to support the cost of a program which they are in should pay a fee, and those who cannot should be provided with assistance. This allows the YMCA to offer a much wider range of programs than it could if it relied solely on contributions. Annual support contributions make it possible for people to participate regardless of their ability to pay.


The full amount of your contribution will go directly to benefit those who need it the most because the YMCA’s administrative costs are covered by program and membership fees. The YMCA is a great investment for contributors when you consider how efficiently their dollars are put to work. Making your donation 100% tax deductible, your contribution may be designated to support a specific program and its participants.



By sponsoring a team or program you are helping 100’s of children participate no matter their financial situation. With sponsorship we will list your name/company in our annual support news; banners will be posted at the site or in the facility affiliated with the program during the season. Some options available for sponsorship are: Swim Team, Youth Summer Camps, Youth Basketball and Youth Soccer.
