100 campaign

Did you know that a gift of $100 can send a child to camp where they can develop friendships, life-skills, activity skills, and core values? $100 can provide a membership to a youth so they can engage in positive, healthy activities while they are not in school. $100 can provide assistance for two families so parents and children can enjoy some quality time together. Finally, $100 can teach 4 people how to swim and be safe around the water.

The impact we can all have together can change lives and change communities. When you give to the Y, you join a powerful movement of people dedicated to strengthening our community by nurturing the potential of every child and teen, improving our nation’s health and well being, and giving back to support our neighbors. Together, we can build a better us!

Donations and pledges can be taken now through the end of the drive. If you are willing to participate, please give online or fill out a pledge card at the member service desk before December 14. A gift of $100 will get you an “I Gave” membership scan card, recognition on our lobby display for the drive, an invitation to our annual campaign celebration and a great feeling. Your membership is a gift you give yourself, and your donation is a gift you give to someone else. We encourage you to consider a contribution during this community portion of our campaign. Thank you for your generosity!
