Every little bit counts

October 20, 2015


As a Y member, you shape your center every day."

Do you love your Y? Then make like Beyonce and put a ring on it!

The YMCA of Metro Chicago would not be what it is today without the support of our volunteers and donors, who provide thousands of service hours, dollars and smiles every year. As the holiday season approaches, we ask you to consider strengthening your membership with an independent donation of any value. Every little bit counts and helps us to provide:

Last year we were able to provide $2.9 million in membership and program assistance and engage 5,196 children and youth in subsidized programs. But the Y’s efforts don’t end with our charitable giving. You, as a Y member, shape your center every day through your participation in programs, volunteerism in community initiatives and gifting in support of this neighborhood-based organization.

We invite you to grow with us. Share your favorite Y story online to help us paint the big picture of what we’re all about, or make a donation in the name of your family or organization. Your contributions to the Annual Fund ensure that we can remain steadfast in our commitment to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility for years to come.
