STRONG COMMUNITY CAMPAIGN

WHAT IS THE STRONG COMMUNITY CAMPAIGN?

The Strong Community Campaign is an annual fundraiser that focuses on raising much needed funds to provide quality YMCA programming at an affordable and subsidized rate. Last year, through the generosity of over 325 donors, $145,600 was raised toward the Strong Community Campaign. Your generous donations supported people of all ages to become healthier and more productive regardless of their background or financial situation.

The Y is one of the nation’s leading nonprofits strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.  Across the U.S., 2700 Ys engage 21 million men, women and children regardless of age, income or background – to nurture the potential of children and teens, improve the nation’s health and well-being and provide opportunities to give back and support neighbors.  Anchored in more than 10,000 communities, the Y has the long-standing relationships and physical presence not just to promise, but to deliver, lasting personal and social change.

We believe that every person deserves the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve.

A GROWING NEED…

The Mankato Family YMCA makes every effort to provide services to all who wish to participate.  Financial need continues to grow as does our commitment to continually provide services to our community.
