Kids Campaign

Every day the Y works side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.

When you give to the YMCA’s Kids Campaign, 100% of your gift goes toward providing YMCA memberships for kids in need. By doing so, you continue to strengthen community and move us all forward.

Youth Sponsorships

Youth sponsorship memberships keep the Y available for kids who need us most. We count on the generosity of people like you to help all kids from all walks of life be more healthy, confident, connected and secure. When you give to the Y, you nurture the potential of kids and teens in your own community.

Whether in youth sports, summer day camp or one of our afterschool programs, the Y provides fun and interactive activities that help kids develop academic skills, leadership and social skills, self-esteem, conflict resolution abilities and hobbies.

Each gift of $100 sponsors a one-year YMCA membership for a kid. A Y membership connects kids with afterschool programs held at 15 different locations, summer day camp, swimming, sports, arts and so much more.

The result is positive, healthy and engaged kids and teens.

What your gift means...

An independent evaluation of the kids at the outreach centers found that our kids:

  • Improved their behavior throughout the school year.
  • Were more immune to peer pressure.
  • Were more concerned with making smart choices.
  • Are doing better in school.
