Support the YMCA of Dane County
At the YMCA of Dane County, we are growing stronger together.
Dane County faces new challenges that create a greater need for the work we do. Where some see obstacles, we see opportunities for our members, volunteers, staff and generous donors like you to make a difference. No other nonprofit organization can impact as many people as powerfully as we do everyday.
Each year, through our Annual Campaign, 100% of your donation directly supports financial assistance and program subsidies for your friends & neighbors. Through community donations, corporate giving and our member campaign, My Y Weeks, we are able to raise much needed funding that can immediately impact our region. When you give to the YMCA of Dane County, 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 Madison.
We give nearly 27,000 facility and program members throughout the year a sense of belonging and provide the tools, support and skills to live life to its fullest. Nearly 25% of those members receive financial assistance, which means over 7,300 local residents have an opportunity to grow physically, intellectually and spiritually, and are empowered to make healthier choices for themselves and their families.
When you donate to the Y, you're supporting programs and services that help strengthen your community. Give for a better us.
