Our Approach to Vendor Management
The YMCA of Metro Chicago strives to develop strong relationships with vendors who meet our criteria and align with our mission. Our relationships with small businesses and organizations are key to upholding our mission and strengthening our connection to the community.
Interested in Becoming a Vendor Partner?
Read on for our procurement processes and standards. The YMCA of Metro Chicago’s standard terms are Net60. However, accommodations can be made if this is a barrier for smaller businesses. Also, vendors providing on-site services must provide proof of insurance.
If you meet these requirements and are interested in being a YMCA vendor-partner, please complete the New Vendor Request Form and submit it to [email protected] along with an overview of the services you provide. A member of our team will reach out upon review of your submission.
Our Commitment to Supplier Diversity
The YMCA’s dedication to investing in our communities reaches beyond our locations and programming. By partnering with a wide array of vendors, we can utilize these connections as a tool for impact. We are firmly committed to strengthening our supplier diversity by partnering with businesses of all kinds.
