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”.

THIS GIVING TUESDAY, DONATE FOR A BETTER US.

THE Y. FOR A BETTER US.
