Annual Campaign – Schenectady
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 Schenectady, we need your help.
From helping infants develop trust and security, to helping pre-schoolers learn about their world to helping school-age students build confidence, and a positive view of their self worth, we help children develop into caring young adults.
More than 3,017 families benefit from membership financial assistance. Of those 535 children receive assistance for school-age childcare.
Urban Camp Commitment
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. Please help reach more children in need at our Jerry Burrell Park and Mont Pleasant summer camps.
3,566 children enjoyed the Y summer camp. Of those, 370 were able to attend because of financial assistance.
Urban Park Revitalization
At the Y, we’re committed to providing our community with safe, welcoming spaces where children and the adults in their lives can flourish.
At Y summer camp, we help children build confidence while enjoying a variety of programs and activities that encourage children to develop independence and learn new skills. Children enjoy fun activities that allow for physical involvement, social interaction, educational opportunities, leadership building, personal growth, and creativity.
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.
