The YMCA is one of the largest nonprofit community service
organizations in America!

 

The North Suburban YMCA needs your help. We're not a gym. We're not a recreation facility. We are a charitable organization. As a nonprofit, we rely on the generosity of people like you to support our programs and services. Everything we do is in service of making us--as individuals and a community--better. Together, we can achieve so much more. Please consider making a gift to the Y. There are many ways you can make a difference today:

NSYMCA ANNUAL CAMPAIGN
Every day, Y staff and volunteers deliver on our cause to strengthen the North Suburbs. Our service area, which includes 15 local communities, is both broad and diverse. Whether building confidence in kids, encouraging someone to achieve a health goal, or bringing people from different backgrounds together to improve our local neighborhoods, every connection we make contributes to a better “us.”

Give to deliver positive change across our broad service area.

NSYMCA CAPITAL CAMPAIGN
Currently, the NSYMCA is in the final phase of an 8-year, $8.2 million capital improvement project. Past phases have included highly visible developments, including renovations to our playgrounds, ADA access to our facilities, and revitalization of our wellness floor and locker rooms. The concluding portion of our master facility plan for the Y has a goal of $500,000, which will further enliven our presence in the community.

Help us meet our Capital Campaign Challenge Grant with a donation.

STRONG KIDS FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE FUND
The NSYMCA believes that within the limits of available funding, every family and individual should receive the help they need to reach their full potential. Each year we raise funding through community donations to help support this philosophy. Last year over 2,600 children, young adults, families and active older adults took part in life-enhancing programs through community donations to help support this philosophy. Every dollar donated to the Y lifts the world around us, strengthening families and connecting our communities.
