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!

NEW Y POOL = NEW COMMUNITY ASSET

FOR SENIORS:

Water exercising is for all ages. As our population continues to age, we are challenged to keep our seniors healthy, active and independent: Aquatic Exercise meets the needs of this increasing demand.

FOR SAFETY:

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

FOR THERAPY:

People with disabilities struggle to reduce the effect of their limitations: Pool time alleviates pain and increases thier strength.

FOR QUALITY FAMILY TIME:

Families look for ways to spend meaningful time together: The pool offers opportunity for bonding and fun.
