2017 Annual Campaign

The YMCA’s Annual Campaign allows us all to imagine more for children, families and adults in our community. 100% of every dollar given to the YMCA Annual Campaign is invested in the lives of people who need the Y. Help us imagine more. Help us do more.


Last year the YMCA provided financial assistance to over 900 individuals, primarily youth and those will special needs.


Your gift goes beyond helping individuals. It helps support over 38 programs that require community support. In this way your contribution helps thousands more.


Through special events like our Healthy Kids Day and the Fall Family Festival over 1,200 kids celebrated their youth by learning about health & wellness all while playing games and being active.


Just as the YMCA benefits from the generosity of our community, it also gives back to the community. Annually the YMCA gives over $29,250 in contributed memberships to annual events and special events.

Mom & Son Photo


I am a single mother of a 7 year old boy with autism. We have chosen to use exercise as a treatment over expensive prescription remedies. During the winter months it is hard to get outside to play and continue his therapy to keep him on track. Financial assistance would provide us space, programs and family time to do healthy activities to keep him moving in a positive direction.

– Mom from Escanaba




OUR GOAL: $109,000

Please consider making your gift over the course of the year. This is how most of our supporters choose to give because it makes contributing SO much easier. We can send your pledge reminders monthly, quarterly or semi-annually. Just tell your campaign volunteer how you would like to be reminded.
