When our families and neighbors thrive, our community is stronger. Right now, the need for stronger communities is greater than ever.
When a neighbor needs support, the YMCA of Northwest North Carolina stands ready to help with open arms and caring hearts. Whether it is:

  • Ensuring more kids have a safe space to learn, grow, and thrive.
  • Giving seniors a helping hand or a listening ear so they don’t feel isolated.
  • Providing lifesaving skills to prevent drowning.
  • Changing a child’s life forever by giving them an unforgettable experience at YMCA Camp Hanes.
  • Giving someone a sense of hope and belonging with a financial scholarship to the Y when they need us during the most vulnerable time of their life.
  • And so much more!

These are a few reasons to find your “why” and give to the YMCA of NWNC’s Annual Impact Fund. With your support, we can ensure the organization’s sustainability and changing lives - while not forgetting people, connections, and hope are what matters most in our world today. 
With your support, we can keep it that way.
