2015 Annual Support Campaign
The YMCA is more than a gym, or a pool, or a preschool...it’s a CAUSE. A cause that strengthens communities through programs that affect Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility. We can’t do it alone.
Memberships and programs allow us to maintain the status quo, but growing the YMCA mission will take your support. Please consider making an impactful donation to advance the cause of the Y.
“I already pay a membership fee each month, why should I donate too?” That’s a phrase we have heard, and we absolutely appreciate the commitment our members make to the Y. Charitable giving is another way for our members to truly change their Y and community. Donations support improving our preschool, they support growing our healthy living efforts in the community. They improve our wellness center, shower rooms, basketball courts and everything in between.
Is the Y really a charity?
The YMCA is really a 501(c)3 charitable not-for-profit organization. We aim to maintain reasonable membership fees and program rates, which limits our opportunities for growth and improvement. Charitable giving allows us to grow in ways that better serve you, the member. It also allows us to expand our reach by offering programs such as Touch a Truck, Healthy Kids Day, Teen Character Awards and many others.

Swim Lessons For All Ages
Adult Swim Lessons Available
Swim lessons are for everyone, the young and the young at heart. At the YMCA, we welcome all people interested in learning to swim in taking our lessons. Our program supports adults who have historically been uncomfortable around bodies of water, by building gradual confidence in basic skills. From floating, paddling and breathing techniques to swim strokes, we strive to help you acclimate to the water in a safe environment.
Contact the Y to set up your individual or group lesson today.
