Give For A Better Us


The Central Connecticut Coast YMCA is committed to providing opportunity, one gift at a time. By meeting the ongoing challenges that members of our communities’ face, the Central Connecticut Coast YMCA invites you to consider a donation will help us serve ALL. Each donation helps to strengthen our community by providing financial assistance for early learning programs, school aged child care, summer camp, safety in and around the water, swim lessons and housing the homeless.

By supporting the Y, you help guarantee that everyone, regardless of their ability to pay, can experience the Y by participating in healthy programs to improve their health, close educational achievement gaps, build strong character and help to change trajectories.

The goal for the 2023 Central Connecticut Coast YMCA Annual Campaign is $1.4 million dollars and will serve the most vulnerable members of our communities.

Some reasons why our donors GIVE;

“I give because I have confidence in the importance of promoting quality early learning environments for children that are culturally and developmentally appropriate despite their religion, ethnicity, socio-economic status, language, etc.”;  “Giving just feels right”; “I give to the Annual Campaign because I think the money I make could be more helpful to others than it is to me.”

Consider making a gift:

  • A $1,000 gift supports a homeless family to receive their permanent supportive housing placement.
  • A $500 gift sends an at-risk youth to Summer Camp.
  • A $250 gift supports a working family by assisting with Early Learning or School Aged Child Care cost.
  • A $100 gift helps the Y teach a child to be safe in and around the water, and to learn how to swim.
  • A $50 gift provides basic living items for a family in need.

Your tax deductible gift will be allocated to the branch selected and acknowledged as an unrestricted donation. The YMCA uses unrestricted gifts where they can do the most good, and we are committed to connecting our community’s most critical needs with donors like you who make a difference.  The Central Connecticut Coast YMCA is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, charitable community service organization, EIN: 06-0662195.
