Y For All Campaign

When you give to the YMCA, you can BE WHY a child tries a new sport for the first time, why they learn about geology at summer camp, why a teen connects with peers through digital media, why an adult gets out of the house for the first time in months, and why a senior knows where their next meal is coming from. You can BE WHY our community thrives.

Your support of the YMCA enables us to do more and to make a deep and lasting impact in our community. Funds raised support the Y's work in communities across the Black Hills area focusing on programs that serve to empower youth, build healthier families and foster inclusive communities.

Youth Sponsorships

A gift of $100 provides a one-year YMCA membership to a child in need. When kids join the Y, they get access to our afterschool programs like Kidstop, Youth Institute (a digital media program for teens), youth sports, and the Y North Teen Center. 

Summer Camp

A gift of $300 provides the opportunity for one child to attend summer camp! Giraffic Park summer day camp is located in the beautiful Black Hills and offers kids the chance to learn new skills like archery, hiking, an introduction to sciences like geology and botany, and most importantly, the opportunity to have fun! 

Active Adults

A gift of $500 helps low-income adults experience the Y through a full or partial scholarship. Born out of the need to battle social isolation following 2020, the Y started a group dedicated to helping adults connect through hiking, walking, and sports like pickleball. Your gift can be the boost needed to help a lonely adult re-engage with the community. 

Senior Meals

A gift of $1,000 provides a daily lunch to a senior for six months. With 1 in 14 seniors facing food insecurity, the Y has become a constant in our community for those in need of a nutritious meal. In 2021, the Y provided over 5,000 meals to seniors and today, the Y continues to see more seniors coming to the Y for connection and a warm meal.

Builders Circle

Donors who give over $1,000 are inducted into the YMCA's Builders Circle. Members of the are recognized throughout the year in the YMCA Annual Report, YMCA Lobby Monitors and on our website. They also receive a plaque highlighting their wonderful gift.
