Annual Campaign - YMCA of Greater Dayton

The YMCA of Greater Dayton's Annual Campaign ensures that no one is denied the opportunity to share in the YMCA DonateNowButton 0experience due to an inability to pay. Each year, thousands of kids learn to swim, play and compete in youth sports leagues, go to summer camp, learn new skills and make new friends at the YMCA.

The Y is the unparalleled cause for strengthening community because we are the community. Together with you, your family and your neighbors, our movement strengthens Miami Valley communities by promoting youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We’ve done it for 144 years and we are determined to continue our neighborhood support.

In 2013, we served over 130,000 individuals in diverse communities throughout the Dayton area. Scholarships, subsidies and outreach provided middle to low-income families access to critical YMCA programs and services. We had over 4,000 volunteers join our cause of strengthening community by contributing their time and efforts to our Y mission.

The YMCA of Greater Dayton provided over $5.9 million in financial assistance to area families in 2013.

Here is a snapshot of how this assistance was allocated: SK photo

SUMMER CAMP - Over 1 in 3 campers received assistance providing them a summer filled with nature, outside play, cookouts, friendship and more in a caring, safe environment
CHILD CARE - 70% of the almost 2,000 children enrolled in our child care programs received assistance to ensure a safe place to learn, grow and thrive
TEEN PROGRAMS - Over 120 teens participated in leadership, volunteer and summer programs and discovered the value of giving back to the Miami Valley community while embracing the YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility
