When you donate to the Y, you change lives!

Your donation to the Philadelphia Freedom Valley YMCA’s Annual Campaign will help nurture children, strengthen families, and build communities by providing Financial Assistance to our neighbors who need it the most. While member dues operate the facilities, donations allows the Y to provide programming that directly responds to community needs. The opportunity for everyone to become healthier, stronger, and more connected moves us all forward. 1 in 4 of our members receive Financial Assistance, totaling more than $8.4M in services provided in 2015.

Why Give?

The challenges that face our community are both unique and widespread. People of all ages and backgrounds are struggling to reach their full potential. More and more children face seemingly insurmountable learning gaps. Families find it difficult to spend quality time together. But when challenges arise, the Y—with donors like you—steps in to make our community better.

Your donation, no matter what size, makes a difference:

$50 provides a child with lifesaving skills and self-confidence during Swim Lessons.

$150 provides a child with recreation and positive role models during YMCA after-school care.

$250 provides Financial Assistance to an entire family in a difficult time.

$500 provides two 7th graders with a free 1 year membership to provide them a safe place to gather after school and on weekends.

$1,000 provides two struggling families with a chance to build long lasting memories and healthy habits.

$2,500 sends 4 children with special needs to summer camp.
