Support the Annual Fund - Strengthen Your Community
Your support is necessary to fund many of the Y programs and services that families that are in need use every day. Together we can ensure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn grow and thrive in a YMCA program.
The Charles River YMCA Annual Fund campaign provides financial aid to members of our community. With your contribution to Reach Out we are able to open our programs to children, youth and adults regardless of financial ability. Every dollar raised from this local campaign directly benefits the Charles River YMCA.
Your Donation Makes a Difference!
With the funds raised from the 2010 campaign we were able to:
Distribute over $170,000 in financial aid to members of our community
Award over $53,000 in scholarships to low income families for summer camp
Provide $27,000 in subsidiaries for adults and seniors in the community who could not otherwise afford memberships.
We Need Your Help
This year requests for aid have already increased 40% and we need your help more than ever before!
While programs may develop in one neighborhood, the strength of the Y is that we leverage great programs and take those to other communities that then benefit. Again, at the Y, no child, family or adult is turned away due to an inability to pay full fees. We recognize that for communities to succeed, everyone must be given the opportunity to be healthy confident, connected and secure. We can only make that promise through the support of our donors to the Y’s Annual Fund.
Your gift to the Y’s Annual Fund is tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
