Our Community Impact

In 2023, the YMCA of Northwest North Carolina continued to provide meaningful services to our members and community via our 17 branches in Alexander, Davie, Forsyth, Iredell, Stokes, Wilkes, and Yadkin counties, which includes YMCA Youth Development, YMCA Sports, and YMCA Camp Hanes.

We launched new community programs, invested in our facilities and equipment, and continued to demonstrate that the Y is a safe place for all to focus on their health — spiritually, mentally and physically.

  • $1,821,261 in financial scholarships were given for memberships and programs. 
  • We spent $900,000 on new equipment for our members, potential members and guests.
