Creating Brighter Futures - Annual Giving Campaign


We raised $112,543 during our 2020 annual campaign. In 2022 we want to take the bold step of offering sponsored memberships for every 6th grader in our service area. Please help us raise an additional $50,000 to give all 6th graders membership, access and belonging.

2021 Annual Campaign fundraising goal is $165,000.

We aspire to provide every 6th grader in our service area a membership in 2022 at no cost to families. 6th grade is a pivotal age. Positive influences like The Y can make a lasting impact.

We can offer:

  • A chance to be a part of a team and learn how to be a teammate.
  • Healthy living through supervised exercise.
  • A safe place to be after school.
  • Life-saving water safety skills.
  • A safe place to be a kid.

We envision expanding sponsored youth memberships to one additional grade each year.

Our dream is to one day be able give all youth in 6th – 12th grade a sponsored membership to The Y.

Thank you for helping to create brighter futures for the youth in our community.

In addition to providing sponsored memberships, your dollars will support the following and more:


Gives 6 children water safety skills with swim lessons.


Builds skills and confidence in 12 kids on a youth sports team.


Sends 5 kids to summer camp to learn and grow.


Affords 11 teens a safe haven to become active.
