2019 Annual Campaign
Good things come together when we work together to build a stronger community. At the Y, we believe that EVERYONE – regardless of age, income or background – deserves the opportunity to live life to its fullest, happiest, healthiest potential. Seeing members like you support one another is the GREATEST GIFT we can imagine. When you make a gift to the Y, it goes to support another person, possibly much like you, who also values the benefit of a healthy lifestyle, safe childcare, or maybe even the opportunity for their child to receive swim lessons or be part of team when they couldn’t otherwise afford it. Your support of our mission could be life-changing to the person next to you. If you are in the position to support another Y family in our community through a donation of any size, please consider the difference that we can make when we all come together . . .

Remember, your membership fees keep the lights on at the Y, but the generosity of our donors, volunteers, members and other supporters ensure our doors stay open to all the children and families who need our services. Our annual campaign raises over $200,000 each year so we can provide kids with scholarships to attend summer camp, preschool, after school care or enjoy youth sports.
CLASSES FOR A CAUSE – Show your Support!
All throughout the month of February, we will be hosting CLASSES FOR A CAUSE. Make sure to come to a class to show your support for our mission and EXERCISE YOUR HEART IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE . . .only at the Y! Classes for a Cause calendar can be found here. Donations at each class are encouraged, but not required. Donors of $100 or more will be recognized with this year’s signature Y shirt or tank top!
CAMPAIGN CELEBRATION HOUR – A fun little way to say “THANKS for your Support!”
Each year, we like to recognize our community champions for their outstanding contributions to the Y’s mission of building a stronger community. Some of you are dedicated volunteers and ambassadors of our mission, many of you generously support the stories that have touched our hearts each year. Regardless of how you support our Y, we invite you to join us on April 25, 2019 at the Club house of Snug Harbour in Stuart for this year’s Campaign Celebration Hour. (Ok, we might have fun for more than just an hour ;)) Tickets are generously provided for our annual donors or you can purchase extra Tickets for $100 per person, a portion of which is tax deductible. Click here to reserve your seat today. Please make sure that you RSVP to email@example.com if you are planning to attend.
We are very grateful for your support. The Y. For a better community. For a better you. For a better us.®
In case you are interested in learning more, here’s more!
Everyone has heard of the YMCA, but few know how much we do. We do more than strengthen bodies – we strengthen communities. We’re a cause dedicated to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. With programs and services built on the core values of Respect, Responsibility, Honesty and Caring, no organization impacts our society as much as the Y. Together with supporters like you, we provide “scholarships” of nearly $300,000 each year to underserved members of our community. We take pride in the fact we don’t turn people away because of inability to pay.
Our annual campaign raises money to benefit children and families in our community. Where society falls short, the Y steps in. And you can help as an ambassador, fundraiser, donor and volunteer.
Our fundraising priorities include:
1. Safe Childcare for working families; this includes Preschool, Afterschool and Summer Camp
2. Swimming programs to make all kids safe in the water
3. Health and Wellness memberships and programming for people of all ages
