Support the Annual Campaign - Strengthen Your Community
Your support is necessary to fund many of the Y programs and services that families that are in need use every day. Together we can ensure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn grow and thrive in a YMCA program.
Your contribution makes a difference!
Have you ever wondered how you can help change someone’s life for the better and what that would feel like? Hundreds of people, just like you, know what that great feeling is like because they support the Oak Square YMCA Reach Out campaign.
With their help, last year alone, the YMCA was able to impact over 1,000 kids, families, and individuals of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. YMCA donors change, improve and even save lives through the support they give the Oak Square YMCA during Reach Out.
With your help, we can offer camp and after school scholarships, membership grants to people with disabilities and families in need, and help kids and families in our community in countless ways. We welcome you to visit our Y in action, day or night, you will be amazed.
Gifts to Reach Out ensure that the Oak Square YMCA is there for those who need us most.
How your contribution positively affects people's lives:
Last year the Oak Square YMCA gave out over $300,000 in scholarship funds to members of our community to subsidize their costs for programs, services and memberships. We do not turn people away.
- Over one thousand community members benefit from financial support from the Oak Square YMCA annually.
- 70% of the children in after school and camp received financial assistance.
- 100% of the money raised by the Oak Square YMCA during Reach Out is used right here in your community.
While programs may develop in one neighborhood, the strength of the Y is that we leverage great programs and take those to other communities that then benefit. Again, at the Y, no child, family or adult is turned away due to an inability to pay full fees. We recognize that for communities to succeed, everyone must be given the opportunity to be healthy confident, connected and secure. We can only make that promise through the support of our donors to the Y’s Annual Fund.
Your gift to the Y’s Annual Fund is tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
