The Y makes strengthening our communities our cause. We count on the generosity of our donors to help us nurture life lessons in kids, foster health and well-being among people of any age, bring people together to pursue passions old and new and provide mutual support for everyone in our neighborhoods.
Why I'm campaigning
Working with infants, children, and youth is a passion and a calling for me. It is a gift to be able to give back to the community and future generations by working with the kids at the YMCA. Knowing I'm helping them become responsible members of the community and future is incredible. I'm campaigning to raise money for the YMCA this year so more children and families have the opportunity to participate in important life-developing programs that the YMCA offers. The Y is for everyone, and campaigning helps raise funds to make it that way.
My Y Story
I'm the Coordinator for Child Watch and the Infant Center at Magdalena Ecke YMCA, and have been working at the YMCA for almost 5 years. I am fortunate enough to interact with hundreds of kids every week, see them grow up, and watch them develop their own passions and interests. Without the programs and assistance opportunities the YMCA offers so many families in the local communities, many of these children wouldn't be able to participate in our program, go to camp, take dance classes, be in a ballet recital, learn to play guitar, go to Wizard Camp, or learn how to swim! The Annual Campaign not only makes these programs possible, but it benefits every member that comes to the YMCA, as $0.93 of every dollar raised goes directly back into the programs here at the Y.
FOUR WAYS TO GIVE, ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES
Whether it's a one-time contribution or a pledge for a larger gift over the course of the year, know that your generosity is helping our neighbors to learn, grow and thrive at the Y. With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y nurtures the potential of every youth and teen, improves the nation's health and well-being and provides opportunities to give back and support our neighbors.
When you give to the Y, you help move people forward. Your generosity and partnership ensures that no child, family or adult is turned away from the Y due to an inability to pay.
