Annual Giving Campaign

2017 Annual Giving Campaign


You are a hero here at the Y! When you give to the Y, you strengthen your community through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. During the YMCA’s Annual Giving Campaign, community members, businesses, volunteers, and staff come together to share and support the Y’s cause. Funds raised ensure that no one is turned away from the Y due to their inability to pay by supporting the Open Doors Financial Assistance Program and youth programs including child care, summer camp, teen leadership, youth sports and swim lessons, and anti-hunger programs. In 2016, this represented over $388,000 in memberships and programs given back to the community.

Your gift helps develop tomorrow’s super heroes…

“Thanks to the adapted swimming program at the Y, our daughter has grown and flourished in ways we never thought possible. Our perception of her and what she is capable of has changed significantly…I will forever be grateful to the YMCA for their dedication and commitment to our daughter and countless children and adults like her. The entire staff at the Y are TRULY changing lives.” – YMCA Family Member

“I really like getting a backpack each week. It helps my mom so she does not have to get that much food for the weekend for all of us.” – Backpack Program Participant


The Chair’s Round Table is comprised of individuals, families, businesses, and organizations that contribute $1,000 or more each year to the Y’s Annual Giving Campaign. When you give at this level, you are the foundation of support for the Y’s cause and mission.


When you give to the YMCA of Centre County, your tax-deductible donation will help youth achieve their full potential, empower people of all ages to lead healthier lives, and strengthen the bonds of community.

At the Y, everyone can be a super hero.
Your gift makes a difference.
Together, we help people of all ages discover their inner super hero!
