Annual Giving Campaign

2019 Annual Giving Campaign

“To the world you may be one person; but to one person you may be the world.”

-Dr. Seuss

When someone like you cares and gives…

Kids, families, and communities succeed with your support. During the Y’s Annual Giving Campaign, community members, businesses, volunteers, and staff come together to support the Y’s cause of strengthening the community. When you give to the Y, you support the Open Doors Program that ensures no one is turned away due to their inability to pay; youth programs like child care, summer camp, teen leadership, sports, swim lessons, and anti-hunger initiatives; and the Stewards of Children Program that teaches adults how to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. In 2018, the Y provided over $500,000 in services back to the community to help local kids, adults, and families in need, all made possible by caring donors like you.

Not just a place you go…

“The Y isn’t just a place where you drop off your kids on your way to work. From the Open Doors Program to the free meal (anti-hunger) programs, the Y offers options when there seems to not be any for struggling families. They provide a safe place for kids where they are treated as equals and not singled out for any differences in their lives. They give the community a place to feel confident and supported and give EVERYONE amazing opportunities. Respect, responsibility, caring, and honesty may seem harder to find in the world nowadays. One place those values are always alive and well is our YMCA of Centre County.” – YMCA Family Member


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 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.
