Annual Campaign – Administrative Office
With your support, we’re building a stronger community one family, one child, one senior at a time.
From providing safe, welcoming care to a child whose mom has lost her job, to providing help to a father who’s survived cancer, to providing fellowship to a senior whose spouse has passed, every day, our Y is making a real difference in your community.
At this moment, there are thousands of individuals depending on us. That’s why your support is critical. To keep helping those in need in the Capital District, we need your help.
From helping elementary students build confidence and a positive view of their self-worth to helping high school students prep for college and career goals, we help children develop into caring adults.
Help us invest in our youth programs. Your donation will help Youth in Motion Student Arts, our Safety Around Water efforts, and Running Start Back to School Program.
The Y is, and always will be, dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected and secure children, adults, families, and communities. Every day our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child, and when a community comes together for the common good.
Your donation helps our Literacy Enrichment Achievement Program (LEAP), Global Immersion Efforts, Circle of Champs, Veterans & Military Memberships, and Improving our Community Environment.
Health and Wellness
Our Y provides a host of unique programs to help those dealing with chronic diseases.
Your donation helps our residents live healthier with the help of life-changing programs, like LIVESTRONG at the YMCA which helps cancer patients find their new normal.
Through programs like Youth & Government, we’re teaching students in middle and high school the value of making a positive difference in our community by working with out political system.
Our Black & Latino Achievers program is a leadership, career readiness, and college preparation program for youth. Caring mentors provide teens with exposure to diverse career options, and help them develop life skills needed to become successful in college and beyond.
Camp is all about having fun, and so much more. It’s about trying new things, making new friends, developing confidence, and learning new skills. Most of all, it’s about teaching children he value of caring about themselves and others.
3,566 children enjoyed the Y summer camp. Of those, 370 were able to attend because of financial assistance.
