Annual Campaign


What is the Annual Campaign?

Each year the YMCA of Youngstown conducts its Annual Campaign to help make our mission a reality by allowing access to Y programs and services. For decades, our YMCA has pledged to turn no one away from its programs and services due to their inability to pay the regular fees for those activities. One way our YMCA honors that pledge is with the charitable support raised from our members and our community.

Why Should I Contribute When I Already Pay Dues as a Member?

Your membership dues cover the costs of operating the YMCA and providing the best member experience. They do not support the funding for outreach programs and financial assistance. Your support in this campaign will provide safe, high quality, character-building programs for children, teens, adults, and families who need the YMCA the most.

How Much of What I Contribute Stays in the Community?

Programs and services in the communities served by the YMCA of Youngstown are funded 100% by dollars raised.

What Are My Payment Options?

The YMCA is pleased to handle contributions in any manner the donor wishes. The pledge form is used to indicate which billing arrangements are most convenient. The donor may wish to spread payment of their contribution over the year on a monthly, quarterly, or semi-annual basis. Most credit cards are accepted, and bank drafts can also be arranged.

Based on that designation, all contributions to the YMCA are considered tax-deductible.
