YMCA of Delaware Annual Campaign
The YMCA of Delaware is so much more than a gym and swim! As a nonprofit, community-building charity, we strive to make our programs widely affordable and accessible to all, regardless of ability to pay. With the support of our donors, we are able to offer programs that close the achievement gap for minority and low-income youth, deliver potentially life-saving water safety lessons, prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes, support men in housing crisis and so much more!
Our donors enable us to serve those in our community who need us the most through targeted programming and our Financial Assistance program, which enables low-income families to attend the YMCA based on their ability to pay.
Last year, thanks to donor support, our YMCA provided opportunities for thousands of Delawareans whom otherwise would not have had the financial means to send their kids to camp, participate in sports programs, or enhance their health through a Y membership.
Please join us and support this year's Annual Campaign as we continue to deepen our impact across Delaware and support communities in need!
Donor Support Impacts Thousands of Lives
"Miracle and Tyroniece will remember this summer forever. The Y changed their lives."
Our donors support and provide life-changing experiences to those who need it most. Your support makes it possible for Miracle, Tyronece, and thousands of others to make memories of a lifetime and build a healthy future.
Gwen Brinkley works long hours, leaving her teenage daughter Miracle to care for her younger sister Tyroniece. Typically the girls would spend their days at home playing video games until Miracle joined the Y's after school program for high school girls.
There, she learned about exercise, nutrition and community. During the summer, the Y was able to send Miracle and Tyroniece to camp for the first time in their lives. Summer days were filled with activities and both girls gained self-esteem and confidence. Their grandmother says, "this was the best thing that ever happened to my grandchildren. Gwen and I never worried, knowing our girls were safe."
Your donations fund camp scholarships and so much more. Thank you for giving to support young people like Miracle and Tyroniece.
