Annual Campaign

Three Simple Ways to Make a Gift

  1. Pledge Today – Submit a pledge form at your branch or by mail or e-mail, and spread your gift out over the year.
  2. Give Today – A one-time donation using cash, check, or credit card – either at the branch or online.
  3. Draft Tomorrow – Let us know at the branch you would like to add-on a monthly donation to your membership draft.

Now, more than ever, we all need healing.

The Y is now, as it always has been, a place of possibility and promise for all. With rising unemployment, children out of school, social isolation, and a global health crisis, this pandemic has dramatically impacted our community and our YMCA.

Even though we, like everyone, were hit hard by the pandemic, we continued providing services to support our neighbors in need. In 2022, we plan to expand our efforts to create more affordable access to our programs and facilities, providing even more individuals and families the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.


2023 Campaign Goal

Campaign Goal 17%
Your Gift Makes a Difference
Membership fees cover the cost of maintaining and operating our facilities. Donated dollars are used for scholarships for individuals and families who cannot afford our fees, but still want and can benefit from our services.
Your Gift Stays Local
Yes. Donations from people in your community support their local YMCA branch. Again, we give away in programs and services much more than we raised. No one is ever turned away from the Y for their inability to pay full price.
Your Gift Makes it Possible
100% of Annual Campaign donations will be utilized to meet the greatest needs of our community and our YMCA
Your Gift Goes a Long Way
Just $20 a month gives four children the chance to participate in youth sports and learn teamwork, self-confidence, good sportsmanship, and social skills for on and off the field.
Your Gift Makes Us Stronger
The Y is a positive force in this community. Together, we take on the challenges that shape York, Lancaster and Chester's futures. From tackling the achievement gap to teaching healthy habits for a lifetime, everything the Y does in in service of building a Better Us.
