Why Give to the Y

Everyone knows the Y as a place to camp, swim, or exercise. Yet, the Y is so much MORE. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, we provide crucial programs and services to our community. 

Addressing Critical Local Needs

As a cause-driven organization for youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, the Great Miami Valley YMCA works side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive in Y programs. To do our important work, the Y relies on support from members, donors, volunteers, and community leaders. Our cause-driven programs include:

  • Offers programs and services to children, adults, and families who need financial assistance.

  • Nurtures the potential of youth through building character at camp, academic enrichment in safe afterschool programs and foundational skills, and values in our child care programs.

  • Improves our community’s health and well-being through combating obesity and chronic disease by providing the support and resources people need to make positive change.

  • Helps us work every day to improve the lives of our members, neighbors and communities through cause-drive programs and services.
