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.

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 gives a child the life-saving skill of swimming through a session of lessons

$100 provides a full year of sports programming to a child where they build life-long skills and learn teamwork

$250 sends a child to overnight camp for the first time, opening up a new world of outdoor adventure, independence and confidence

$500 allows two families to unplug, connect with each other and stay healthy throughout the year

$1,000 allows four seventh graders to explore new interests, stay active and have positive role models during a pivotal time in their lives
