Transforming Lives Together

We’re More Than A Gym. We’re A Cause.

This year, the YMCA of Delaware will raise over $2.1 million to transform lives through the Annual Campaign.

The Annual Campaign allows the Y to provide financial assistance to children and families who cannot afford the full cost of services. This helps the Y ensure that no one is turned away because of inability to pay.

Every day, the YMCA gives people in our community the support they need to live a healthier lifestyle, learn, grow, and thrive. From advocacy to food security, disease prevention to drowning prevention, athletics to dance classes, everything we do helps strengthen our neighborhoods and the people who live here.

Keeping Delaware great is a full-time job. Our community constantly faces new challenges that create a greater need for the work that we do. And the Y needs your help to do it. Your gift can help Delaware and everyone in it shine.

How donations to the Annual Campaign can make a difference:

• $100 will provide a cancer survivor with a two month membership to the Y.

• $250 will teach five children life saving saving water safety skills.

• $500 helps prevent the onset of Type 2 Diabetes for two adults at risk.

• $1,000 sends a child to summer camp at the Y for four weeks.
