Supporting the YMCA

Annual Campaign

Every day at the Y, we strive to create positive, lasting change. From athletics to academic achievement, summer camp to senior activities, the Y doesn't just strengthen bodies, it strengthens our community.

As we face new challenges, there’s a growing need for the work we do. Where some see obstacles, we see opportunities to make a difference. As a non-profit, we need your support to make it happen. Together, we can do so much more.

When you give to the YMCA of Broome County your generosity reaches and supports children, families and seniors throughout our community.

You Can Make a Difference

  • $50 gives a child the opportunity to learn to swim or gain confidence during a season of youth sports.
  • $100 sends a child to one week of summer day camp where lasting friendships are created.
  • $250 helps a child attend the Y’s after school program for one month, giving them a safe, nurturing environment and fun time with friends.
  • $500 will provide a family with a one year Y membership, where they can spend time together in a safe, healthy environment and build memories to last a lifetime
  • $1,000 will support 10 youth memberships for the year. Where they can develop healthy lifestyles and lie a positive and enriched life!
