Our members and friends call us their Y. We call them our greatest resource—the thousands of people who work alongside us and support our work to help our neighbors learn, grow and thrive.
What if we could harness all of that power to make an even greater difference on a larger scale?
With programs from A to Z—like afterschool to advocacy, dance classes to disease prevention, volleyball to volunteerism—we don’t just strengthen individuals, we strengthen our community.
Yet there is so much more to do.
The Metro YMCA faces new challenges that create a greater need for the work we do. Fortunately, where some see obstacles, we see opportunities for our members, volunteers, staff, and generous donors like you to make a difference. No other organization can impact as many people as powerfully as we do every day.
Your support helps the Y deliver on our commitment:
To nurture the potential of youth through building confidence at camp, academic enrichment in safe afterschool programs, or foundational skills and values in our child care programs.
To improve the nation’s health and well-being through combating obesity and chronic disease by providing the support and resources people need to make positive change.
To give back and support our neighbors by empowering people with the resources to improve their lives and connect and contribute to the community, such as with job training, housing, newcomer services, and opportunities to advocate for social change.
To offer programs and services to children, adults and families who need financial assistance.
Your gift can change a life. Your company's matching gift can change another. Did you know that hundreds of companies across the country match employee contributions to the YMCA.
Simply contact your employer's human resources office and ask whether your company matches employee donations.
