Annual Campaign

Throughout the Greater Green Bay area, countless people know the YMCA. But there’s so much more to our Y than one might think. From exercise to education, from volleyball to volunteerism, from preschool to preventive health, the Y doesn’t just strengthen our bodies. It strengthens our community. The Y is so much more than a gym. We touch the lives of nearly one out of every eight people in our community. For over 140 years, we’ve been proud to help our neighbors learn, grow and thrive. Yet we’re called to do so much more.

We need your philanthropic support to make it happen. Every gift makes a difference. Everyone has a role to play. Together, we can achieve so much more. To donate, download an Annual Campaign Donation Form or donate online now.

2019 Annual Campaign Donate Now

Believe. Inspire. Give.

Financial assistance keeps the Y available for kids and families who need us most. We count on the generosity of our members and community to help people of all ages and from all walks of life be more healthy, confident, connected and secure.

When you give to the Y's Annual Campaign, you are funding life-changing programs that help thousands of children, adults and families in our community to learn, grow and thrive. Here are just a few of the stories we'd like to share:

Kids with Autism need a place to practice the skills they have been learning in their home and school environment. Our family found that place at the Y. We practice everything from saying hi to our friends, to how to properly lock up our personal belongings; from how to manage our YMCA card, to how to shower in a public locker room. Mastering these skills in a safe place has made the community more open for us. The Y has been a safe, fun and friendly place for our children to be themselves.

       2019 Annual Campaign Believe
In 2012, I was diagnosed with IPF. I knew I needed to lose weight to stand a chance of recovery. I went to the Y and that is when my life changed. On September 25th, 2018 I received the call for a lung transplant. The doctors said if it wasn’t for all my hard work at the Y, I wouldn’t have been strong enough to receive the new lung. Without my trainer Cassandra and the YMCA staff, my wife, and my children’s support, I wouldn’t be here today.  ~Rick


2019 Annual Campaign Inspire

I began to give back a little of what I received by becoming a volunteer for the Annual Campaign so that others could experience the same joy I felt when I walked through these doors for the first time. The Y has given me the courage and confidence to be myself and spread the joy of being alive, which is what I love to do. My happy place is at the Y and I don’t know where I would be today if I hadn’t found a home here.  ~Lura

Give. And Do So Much More.

Our members and friends call us THEIR Y. We call them OUR greatest resource—the HUNDREDS of people who work alongside us and support our work to help our neighbors learn, grow and thrive. What if we could harness all of that power to make an even greater difference on a bigger scale?

2019 Annual Campaign Donation ChartWe have an extraordinary opportunity to ensure a brighter future for our community, but we must take action today, and only your support will make it possible to be... a better us. When you give to the YMCA, your gift will help young people achieve their potential, empower people of all ages to lead healthier lives, and strengthen the bonds of community in your area. Together, we’ll take on many of the greatest challenges facing our young people, our health and our community.

Every day, the Y gives our community the support it needs to learn, grow and thrive. From advocacy to education, disease prevention to athletics, football to dance classes, everything we do helps strengthen our neighborhood and the people who live here.

But keeping our community strong is a full-time job. Every day, we face new challenges that create a greater need for the work we do. And we need your help to do it. Your gift can help our community and everyone in it shine.
