Help Sustain Our YMCA

Give For A Better Us


Now more than ever, your support is needed to:

Sustain the Y: Ensure we remain strong and well positioned to respond to the crisis and emerge stronger than ever.

Strengthen the Foundations of Our Community For All: Ensure access for all to critical YMCA programs and services including support for families while children are hybrid learning.

As the area’s leading nonprofit for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Regional YMCA of Western Connecticut works side-by-side with our neighbors every day to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive. With your help, in 2019 we awarded over $374,000 in financial assistance to individuals and families all in service of making us better as individuals, communities and as a nation.

The Y needs your support to fund the important work that we do every day.

Please give today! 


Giving back to our community is core to the Community mission and comes in many forms.

At the Y we take great pride in our ability to serve as a resource, partner and leader, not just for members, but for the entire region in the areas of healthy living, youth development and social responsibility. Please join us as we continue to change lives for the better.
