How You and the Y Can Make a Difference
As one of the leading organizations for youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, the Y depends on financial gifts to do its vital work. In 2018, the YMCA of Greater Kalamazoo provided 6,266 members with scholarships for a total of $256,568 in financial assistance. When you give to the Y, your gift will have meaningful and powerful impact right here in our community. Thank you for your generosity.
Every day, the Y works to change the community around us. Our PRIME TIME before- and after-school program helps kids succeed academically, while also providing fun physical activities and healthy nutrition. We offer programs and classes to help prevent or delay the onset of chronic health diseases like Parkinson's, diabetes, stroke, and heart attacks. We help cancer survivors find their "new normal" in our LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program. Seniors stay active and more independent at home by participating in numerous YMCA Active Older Adults programs.
It is only with your support that we can support individuals and families struggling to address growing health challenges - childhood obesity, adult-onset diabetes, hypertension, sedentary lifestyles. Good health should be accessible to all, regardless of age, income, or background.
