Now More Than Ever

Every year, the YMCA of Metropolitan Lansing works to respond to the community’s needs, and this year has been no different. During challenging times, our communities depends on the Y’s adaptability. As the COVID-19 pandemic lingers, the Y continues to address our community’s most pressing needs.

But with facility closures, program suspensions, and subsequent loss of revenue, the Y’s ability to provide crucial social services for the most vulnerable members of our community is at risk. We can’t do it alone.  Each year the YMCA of Metropolitan Lansing reaches to to ask the community to make charitable contribution to address our most pressing needs. Your gift to the Y’s Annual Campaign will help make a real difference in the lives of kids and families that are being helped through scholarships camping programs, childcare services, feeding programs and program for chronic disease prevention.

Your gift to the 2023 YMCA's Annual Campaign will make a real difference for local youth and families. By keeping the doors open and the services flowing, you are essential in keeping families healthy, safe and engaged.

2023 Annual Campaign Giving

Why does the Y have an annual campaign?

The Y’s financial assistance program is 100% funded by donations. Membership fees cover our facilities, salaries, etc. but do not fund our financial assistance programs. To make our programs and services available to all, we need the support of our members, staff, and the community in raising funds so that no one is turned away.

Why do we provide financial assistance and scholarships to those with demonstrated need?

We believe that people prefer to accept responsibility and pay full registration fees when they can afford them. But when financial difficulties stretch individual and family budgets too thin, the need for YMCA programs remains, and in some instances, may even be more crucial.
