OUR 2024 GOAL: $105,000



The Y is a positive force in this community.

Together, we take on the challenges that shape our future. From tackling the achievement gap, to teaching healthy habits for a lifetime or giving people the chance to strengthen our community through volunteering, everything the Y does is in service of building a better us. Every day our community faces new challenges that create a greater need for the work we do. YMCA donors, volunteers, members, and partners like you make the difference.

Grounded in our Christian heritage and guided by our timeless values, we open our doors to all, no matter where they are or where they come from. Everything the Y does is in service of making us - as individuals and a community - better.

When you donate to the NORTHERN LIGHTS YMCA you make DELTA COUNTY better through programs focused on:

Youth Development

All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve under the guidance of caring adults who believe in their potential. We see every interaction with young people as an opportunity for learning and development - all grounded in the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

Healthy Living

We help people and families build and maintain healthy habits for spirit, mind and body in their everyday lives. By helping kids, adults, families and seniors from all walks of life improve their health and well-being, we build a stronger community.

Social Responsibility

With our doors open to all, we bring together people from all backgrounds and support those who need us most. We take on the most urgent needs in our community and inspire a spirit of service in return. Our members, volunteers, supporters and staff demonstrate the power of what we can achieve by giving back together.

Last year the YMCA provided financial assistance to more than 1,400 individuals, primarily youth and those with special needs.


Your gift goes beyond helping individuals. It helps support over 33 programs that require community support. In this way your contribution helps thousands more.


Through free family events like our Healthy Kids Day and Fall Family Festival, more than 1,200 kids celebrated their youth by learning about health & wellness 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 more than $29,000 in contributed memberships to annual events and special events. In addition, the YMCA provided Active Military with over $9,000 worth of membership in 2023.
