Thank you for your support


Changing lives in three dimensions

Our mission in greater Chicagoland is all about changing lives for the better in three ways:

At the Y, no child, family or adult is turned away. We recognize that for communities to succeed, everyone must be given the chance to learn, grow, and thrive.

If everyone helps, together we will achieve so much more. That’s why we are asking you to support the Y with a gift to the Annual Fund. Because when our efforts are joined together, we can make the biggest difference.

If not you, who?

Why give?

When you give to the Y, you strengthen our community. As the nation’s leading nonprofit for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y uses your gift to deliver meaningful and lasting change right in your own neighborhood.

But your support doesn’t stop there.  It enables us to offer a wide range of programs that help children learn and grow, teach young people to lead, bring families closer together and encourage individual health and well being.
