MORE ABOUT GIVING TO THE Y
Every day we see the many faces of need in our community. Children in need of safe care and educational support, teens in need of positive role models and activities, and families who need a place to belong and grow in spirit, mind and body.
The YMCA of Greater Miami is committed to serving these needs and others through programs such as child care, camp, youth sports, and health and wellness. Your gifts make a difference by keeping the YMCA “Open to All" regardless of financial circumstances.
The YMCA of Greater Miami is a mission-based, 501(c) (3) non-profit organization that depends on the generosity of its supporters to continue providing quality programs for the children, families and adults we serve.
It is our goal to ensure that no one is ever turned away from a YMCA program because they could not afford to participate. We accomplish this through our Annual Community Promise/Strong Kids Campaign, our Jackson Society and other fund raising events.
Last year, the YMCA of Greater Miami gave approximately $800,000 in financial assistance to ensure that no one was turned away from participating in our YMCA programs. Although the vast majority of our recipients are kids who come to us for child care, camps and after-school programs, we also provide assistance to adults and seniors for programs that contribute to their overall health and well-being. Your contribution will go directly to provide financial assistance and program support for deserving children or families so they may access the programs they need.
