2014 Partner With Youth Annual Giving Campaign

WE’RE MORE THAN A GYM.  WE’RE A CAUSE.

Untitled-6Our members and friends call us THEIR Y. We call them OUR greatest resource—the HUNDREDS of people who work alongside us and support our work to help our neighbors learn, grow, and thrive.

What if we could harness all of that power to make an even greater difference on a bigger scale?

With programs from A to Z—like athletics to advocacy, dance classes to disease prevention, volleyball to volunteerism—we don’t just strengthen individuals, we strengthen our community.

We have an extraordinary opportunity to ensure a brighter future for the Jamestown area, but we must take action today, and only your support will make it possible.

When you give to the YMCA, your gift will help young people achieve their potential, empower people of all ages to lead healthier lives, and strengthen the bonds of community in the greater Jamestown area.

Together, we’ll take on many of the greatest challenges facing our young people, our health, and our community.

Every donation, no matter the size, makes a difference in the life of one of our neighbors. 100% of all donations go directly toward providing life-changing experiences at our YMCAs. As a nonprofit organization, we never turn away anyone who needs us.

When you think of your YMCA, know it’s more than just a gym…it’s a cause. A cause that, with your generous support, will continue to strengthen the community in which you live.

Every gift makes a difference.
Everyone has a role to play.
Together, we can achieve so much more.
