PUSH FOR THE POOL Fundraiser
Exciting things are happening at the YMCA of Greater Kalamazoo! Through the generosity of many leadership gifts, we have raised over $4.5 million dollars through our BUILDING FOR GENERATIONS capital campaign, designated for expansion and improvements at the Y. Now we need YOUR help to make the pool a reality in 2018.
MATCH DONATION: As a new incentive, we have a donor who will match gifts toward the pool one dollar for every two contributed, so your gift will have greater impact!
A pledge of over $300 can be stretched over a three year period.
Your gift will help build a pool for the community...FOR ALL. Please give or pledge, today!

Children need to be safe around water and learn lifelong fitness activities: Swimming lessons save lives and develop confidence.
