At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. You can help kids learn, grow and thrive, as well as ensure no one is ever turned away due to the inability to pay. Donations provide financial assistance to make Y programs available to everyone in our community.
Every gift makes a difference. Everyone has a role to play. Together, we can do so much more.
One Community. One Impact.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit our area, the YMCA of Northwest North Carolina responded to community needs through providing emergency childcare to essential workers, hosting blood drives at our branches, creating virtual wellness experiences, and so much more. Our work is not possible without donors who support the Y’s mission of helping all people reach their God-given potential in spirit, mind and body.
Your gifts supports programs like:
- Elementary & Middle School Before and After School Academy
- Summer Exploration Academy (Day Camp)
- E-Learning Academies
- Safety Around Water/Swim Lessons
- YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program
- Bright Beginnings
- Food Distribution
- Teen Programs like Youth and Government and Black and Latino Achievers
- Senior Programs
- YMCA Literacy and ESL tutoring
- LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA
We appreciate your support. Thank you for helping make a difference.
