Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday Banner

The Y is now…as it has always been…a place of possibility and promise for all

Unfortunately, in times when the true power of “us” is unknown to many and our bonds are fraying, we must do even more to enhance our human connections. That’s why the Y passionately focuses on strengthening communities.

Every day, the Y supports kids, adults, seniors, and families with programs that protect, teach, connect, heal, nourish and encourage. Everything we do helps communities and the “us” who live in them thrive.

We can’t do it alone.

That’s why Giving Tuesday, December 3…a day dedicated to supporting causes that do great work…we hope you’ll donate to the Y. Giving Tuesday is a singular opportunity to help our Y strengthen your community. No other organization and no other donation will have a more positive impact on “us”.



Date Night For You, Great Night For Them



You might initially think it this as a night out for the parents, but it’s really a night out for your kids! Not only will your children get the chance to swim, but they will have dinner, dessert, participate in arts & crafts, as well as plenty of other activities! You get to have a little more downtime for yourself as well!
