Welcome to the Fulton Family YMCA

The YMCA of Northwest North Carolina (NWNC) is thrilled to announce the much-anticipated reopening of the Fulton Family YMCA to membership on January 1, 2024. The Fulton Y will be adding membership hours from 7:00am to 1:00pm and will measure facility usage and membership numbers to determine if expanded hours are warranted. Since late 2020, the Fulton Family YMCA has played a vital role as a hub for essential youth development programs, including after-school initiatives, summer camps, youth sports, and housing the TYDE swim team.

Support the Y

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.

Our Mission: "Helping all people reach their God-given potential in spirit, mind and body."
