At SWC YMCA, one of our most important goals has always been to enrich the lives of everyone in our community. Walk into any Y program site or facility and you will see people of all ages, races, and incomes, and you’ll never know who may have received help to be there. Each year, the Y provides financial assistance to children, adults, and families who cannot afford to participate in the YMCA, its programs, and/or services. These funds are generated by a combination of our income and donations across South Wood County, from generous businesses, foundations and individuals just like you.
Gifts to our annual campaign make a huge difference to the YMCA. Gifts provide needed scholarships for children, families, and individuals. For example, kids are given the opportunity to go to camp, enroll in flag football or receive swimming lessons. Families are given assistance to cope with the cost of before and after school care or receive a reduced rate on a membership, for example.
Make Your Shopping Count
Rewards programs and cards are common at many of our favorite retailers. The following program gives Y supporters the opportunity to turn their shopping expenses into a charitable gift that can make a difference in someone’s lives.
AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization. You can choose from nearly one million organizations to support, including the South Wood County YMCA!
It is the Y’s commitment to our communities that no one will be turned away for an inability to pay.
