The YMCA of Delaware is so much more than a gym and swim!

As a nonprofit, community-building charity, we strive to make our programs widely affordable and accessible to all, regardless of ability to pay. With the support of our donors, we are able to offer programs that close the achievement gap for minority and low-income youth, deliver potentially life-saving water safety lessons, prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes, support men in housing crisis and so much more!
Our donors enable us to serve those in our community who need us the most through targeted programming and our Financial Assistance program, which enables low-income families to attend the YMCA based on their ability to pay.

Last year, thanks to donor support, our YMCA provided opportunities for thousands of Delawareans whom otherwise would not have had the financial means to send their kids to camp, participate in sports programs, or enhance their health through a Y membership.

Please join us and support this year’s Annual Campaign as we continue to deepen our impact across Delaware and support communities in need!
