Giving Back to the Y this Holiday Season

December 14th, 2015

Teen Leaders at the Y

With the holiday season in full swing, why not create some cheer with a gift to the YMCA of Greater Richmond.  Can you help us make a difference?

You faithfully pay your membership dues every month, so why should you make a donation to the Y? Because 100 percent of the dollars raised through our Annual Campaign helps us serve our community, driving our cause – to strengthen the foundations of our community. Many of our programs and their participants, rely on the generous support we receive from donors to our annual fund, not membership dues.

Did you learn to swim at the Y? So have hundreds of second graders across the Richmond region through our Learn to Swim program – all funded by our Annual Child Swimming at the YMCACampaign.

Do you have a teen in one of our Leaders’ Clubs? We develop the leaders of tomorrow through a variety of teen programs, much of which is made possible through generous contributions to our annual fund.

Do you remember summers full of fun and adventure at YMCA Summer Camp? Through gifts to the Annual Campaign, children who otherwise would not have the chance, can experience the same joy of summer camp as you did.

There are countless other programs that our supported through our Annual Campaign that make our community stronger. We invite you to take a deeper look at all the YMCA does and consider making a gift to the YMCA this holiday season.
