Community Partnership

Join the Mission

Our YMCA of Greater Grand Rapids works side-by side with corporate partners like you to improve quality of life for local employees and their families by creating opportunities to get healthy, give back and nurture a positive work environment. Together, we can foster a corporate culture of engagement, loyalty, and social responsibility. Interested in partnering with the Y? Inquiry

Corporate Membership & Wellness

Good health and wellness is good business. In fact, research shows that effective wellness programs can boost employee engagement and productivity, while also having a significant impact on health risk factors, including high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, obesity and high cholesterol.

Through a YMCA Corporate Membership, companies can provide their employees with a comprehensive wellness program, health education and savings on memberships, all of which can improve employee morale, absenteeism, and productivity.

“My YMCA membership is an important piece of my professional and personal success.  I don’t run at the Y just for my physical health.  I run for my mental health.  I know that when I take care of my physical health there are mental health benefits that helps ensure I am at my best for my family and my team.” – Nate Koetje, Chief Executive Officer of Feyen Zylstra


From water safety to teen leadership development, Livestrong to sports, summer camp to afterschool programming, everything our Y does is in service of making us – as individuals and a community – better. But we can’t do it alone. We count on corporate partners like you to help us reach kids and families who lack the resources they need to thrive.

Through corporate, foundation and employee giving opportunities, your organization can make a difference and help tackle our community’s most critical needs. Every dollar donated to the Y stays local and helps us provide high impact programs and services that change lives.


We host several community events each year to raise crucial funds for our Annual Campaign. Our Y is able to support the communities we serve with the help of generous participants and sponsors who support our events.

Hour of Impact: The YMCA’s Hour of Impact brings community leaders, partners, and supporters together to celebrate the impact we can make as a community and to raise funds in support of Y programs as they make transformational change possible for all.

Driving To Achieve Golf Outing: The Driving to achieve – Walt Gutowski, Sr. YMCA Golf Outing benefits our Teen Leadership Programs throughout West Michigan. These include Youth in Government, the Summer Teen Learning Academy, Leaders in Training at Camp Manitou-Lin, and more. The YMCA golf outing provides our supporters with the ultimate win-win; support for youth and the Y and an amazing premier class game of golf at Blythefield County Club.

Miles For A Mission: Miles for a Mission are races throughout our community that raise awareness and support for YMCA programs. These annual races provide individuals, youth, and families the opportunity to be healthy and thrive, to connect with others, and strengthen themselves and outcomes for their neighbors at the same times.
