Support our Annual Campaign and Strengthen Your Community

Your support is necessary to fund many of the Y programs and services that families in need use every day. Together we can ensure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn grow and thrive in a YMCA program.

Here are a few examples of how the Y makes a difference in your neighborhood:

Youth Development

We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. Through our Y, thousands of neighborhood youth are developing values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement.

A gift the YMCA Annual Campaign will make a difference to the kids in your community. You can help change the direction of a child’s life by helping them to learn to swim, go to camp for the first time, or master their ABCs through our early education curriculum. Your support today will give kids the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive so that they can become the healthy, happy adults of tomorrow.

Healthy Living

The Y is at the forefront of addressing some of the greatest health concerns affecting our society today. From childhood obesity to diabetes prevention to supporting cancer survivors, the Y is helping thousands of people of all ages living in communities in and around DeKalb County, live healthier and happier lives.

Thanks to strong relationships with many of DeKalb County’s community health centers, hospitals, educational institutions, and state and local agencies the Y is a partner in the fight against chronic illness. It is through this extensive network of providers and Annual Campaign donors like you that we offer practical, realistic and affordable solutions so that everyone has the opportunity to live a healthier life in a supportive community.

Social Responsibility

Whether developing skills through volunteering or providing access to healthy meals to families and children over the summer, we are making the community stronger by giving adults and families the opportunities they need to learn, grow and thrive.

We foster relationships and collaborate with state and local partners to ensure that all people get the care and respect they deserve. Our staff, volunteers, community partners and Annual Campaign donors like you empower more than thousands of people in DeKalb County to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.

At the Y, no child, family or adult is turned away due to an inability to pay full fees. We recognize that for communities to succeed, everyone must be given the opportunity to be healthy confident, connected and secure. We can only make that promise through the support of our donors to the Y’s Annual Campaign

Your gift to the Y’s Annual Campaign is tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
