Give For A Better Us

The Y. For A Better Us.

YMCA Annual Campaign BannerANNUAL CAMPAIGN

The Y strengthens communities for kids, adults, seniors and families. We give everyone the opportunities they need to reach their full potential.

Forty-percent of Connecticut residents do not earn enough income to cover their household living expenses. Being a member of the YMCA should not be one of the expenses a family cannot afford, therefore, the Central Connecticut Coast YMCA, a charitable non-profit organization, is committed to overcoming this barrier for youth, families, and seniors.

Today, twenty-five percent of children, teens, and their families need financial assistance to be a part of the Y. In order to reach their greatest health, academic and development potential, they need your help!

The Central Connecticut Coast YMCA provides citizens within twenty-five towns and cities with access to the extraordinary, lifesaving and enriching programs and opportunities.

The Y welcomes all regardless of ability to pay and your gift makes this possible. Your contributions to the Central Connecticut Coast YMCA provides direct financial assistance for children, families and ALL individuals to participate in the YMCA.

When you donate to the CENTRAL CONNECTICUT COAST YMCA, you make our communities better and the “us” who live in them stronger.

Youth Development

All kids deserve the opportunity to be empowered to reach their full 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, to support those in need. 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 taking action and giving back together.
