First, thank you for #StayingWithUs during these uncertain times. Your cause-driven membership has fueled a remarkable effort to help our most vulnerable friends. This would not have been possible without your commitment to making a difference at a time where self-preservation is the right thing to do. Yet, you did not forget the under-resourced. Amid this crisis, 14,240 of us made a choice to help…to serve...to love.
The Y is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. While we have gyms and pools, that’s not who we are. Our core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility drive everything we do. 3,072 volunteers gave over 94,000 hours of service in 2019, while 4,500 donors contributed $1.3 million to help us serve. The Y provided $2.6 million in access to programs and services to neighbors in need. All this fueled our participants to personal achievement while building relationships and finding a place to belong.
As we prepare to reengage the community through in-person services, members are challenged to see themselves as a part of something bigger. Cause-driven membership at the Y is not just gym and pool access. Behind the scenes, your membership dues, program fees, and donations are being put to work to build a strong, thriving community.
