Together we can make a difference

When you give to the Y, you make a meaningful difference in your community.

Removing Financial Barriers
Everyone deserves a chance to succeed no matter their background or income and that can happen only when we unite to nurture the best in all of us.  We offer need based assistance to help individuals and families access the programs that are important to them. Scholarships are made possible by the generosity of donors and partners who are committed to providing resources that increase access for all.

What Happens When You Give?
The YMCA of Metropolitan Lansing is a cause-driven organization dedicated to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.  The Y relies on the generosity of donors to serve those in our community who need assistance.   We support programs like the following through gifts from donors like you.

Ways to Give
The YMCA of Metropolitan Lansing is more than a gym.  We are a charitable organization committed to serving the community.  In 2017 we distributed more than $1.5 million in financial assistance and program support to ensure that our programs are open to all, regardless of the ability to pay.  When you give to the Y, your dollars stay in the community and help deliver crucial programs and services to help our neighbors grow and thrive.

Annual
Each year our Y reaches out into the community seeking charitable contributions to help our Y meet our mission of serving all who need us. In 2018 we raised more than $500,000. These funds play an important role in assuring that all needing our services have the opportunity to participate through a very active scholarship program. If you cannot afford the full cost of a Y program or membership we encourage you to apply for financial assistance. Confidential financial scholarship applications are available online and at any Y branch location.
