Ways to Give

We All Need the Y.

When you give to the Y, you can be sure your contributed support nurtures the potential of children and teens, improves health and well-being, and supports neighbors – especially those youth and families from disadvantaged and underserved populations in the community.​

There are a lot of different reasons for giving. Every day, the Y helps kids, teens, families and adults to have measurably better lives. The work we do makes a difference and your donation, no matter the size, goes toward the thousands of dollars we award each year that ensures everyone has this opportunity. Every single dollar you give goes toward financial assistance.

How Can I Give?

Donate Online – Our online donation site allows you to securely give to your local YMCA branch or program with a one-time or recurring gift with any major credit card, or the option to be billed later to make your payment.

Pledge to the Annual Campaign – Submit a pledge form at your branch or by mail or e-mail, and spread your gift out over the year.

Round-Ups – Make a BIG change by donating your spare change with everyday purchases by joining our Round-Up program! Your morning coffee, weekly takeout, or monthly bills can turn into a big way to support the YMCA!

Planned Giving – By making a legacy gift to the YMCA, you can ensure that the Y can achieve its mission of a healthy spirit, mind and body for all for generations to come. A gift to the Y’s Endowment Fund is the greatest confirmation of the YMCA mission that a friend of the Y can show and makes you a member of the Heritage Club.

Gifts of Securities– When you donate appreciated securities or mutual funds in support of our mission, you can reduce or even eliminate federal capital gains taxes on the transfer. You may also be entitled to a federal income tax charitable deduction based on the fair market value of the securities at the time of the transfer.

Other Ways to Support

Matching Gifts – Many corporations match employee gifts as part of their philanthropic efforts.  Talk to your HR department today about matching gifts and potentially double your contribution to the Y. Stretch your donation to the Y even further!
