DO MORE, BE MORE
SUPPORT OUR COMMUNITY
At the YMCA, one of our most important goals has always been to enrich the lives of kids in our community. But when some are left out, it leaves us all a bit poorer.
Membership and program fees at the YMCA do not cover the costs to support these vital community programs. To ensure that no one is denied a chance to participate because of inability to pay, we call upon individual members of the community to help. Through the Strong Kids Campaign, your individual or corporate contribution helps the Y provide program support and financial assistance to youth and families who need it most in our community. Gifts of any amount are welcome, and go directly to pay for camperships and memberships in our programs.
Especially popular programs for community support are swim lessons, after-school programs at eight Ulster County sites, and summer camps at Southeast Ulster/New Paltz, Ashokan, & Kingston.
YMCA HERITAGE CLUB
This fancy title is how this Y affectionately refers to all those who choose to support the YMCA in perpetuity, with a gift to our Endowment Fund. Contributions designated specifically for this purpose are invested in long-term, low risk financial vehicles by our Board of Trustees. Only the interest is used to support annual operations. The corpus remains in trust for ever.
For information on any of these opportunities to support our community based programs, contact Heather Bell.
Each association is an independent organization, autonomous and separate from the YMCA of the USA.
