ANNUAL GIVING CAMPAIGN
When you give to the Y, you strengthen our community.
The Annual Giving Campaign is our annual fundraising effort that enables us to provide financial support to our neighbors in our community – so that everyone has the opportunity to belong. We are made up of people of all ages, faiths, and abilities all working side-by-side to ensure that everyone, regardless of gender, income or background, has the opportunity to live life to its fullest. Your gift to the Y makes this possible.
The Y is, and always will be, committed to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility. You can support our mission and make a difference in the lives of others by making a donation to the Annual Giving Campaign. It’s easy, just click on the Donate Now! button or contact or the YMCA Development Department at 475 Lake Michigan Drive NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49504 or call the number to the left.

Because of you …
Children have the support they need to become successful adults, individuals develop the courage to fight obesity, and families grow stronger together. When you give to the Y, you strengthen our community.
“I want to give back what was given to me. I was in a tight bind at one point in time. Thanks to all the SUPPORT of my friends and family, I got through it. I give because it is what God would want me to do. It is a PRIVILEGE to be there for every person and family needing help.”
“I have supported the Strong Kids for years both financially and through VOLUNTEERING. The key for me has always been the Y’s focus on children and on families. Seeing the CONFIDENCE that ALL kids get through participating in the Y’s programs is where I, as a donor and volunteer, find the value of supporting the campaign.”
“I give to Strong Kids because I want all young people to have the healthy OPPORTUNITIES I had growing up. I practically lived at the Y after school; taking swim lessons, enjoying open gym, and belonging to a club for LEADERSHIP and service. I give because so much was provided to me.”
