Annual Campaign

You know the challenges that we face in our community. 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. Playing outside has become a rarity. Face time happens through a phone. And instead of seeing the income gap shrink, it seems all we do is watch it grow.

But where society falls short, the Y – and donors like you – step in. Together we make a difference in the lives of thousands of people and a huge impact on each individual we serve.


After 75 years of serving Wooster, the Y understands what our community needs to be its best.  Working with generous donors like you, the Y provides everyone the opportunity to be healthy and thrive, to connect with others, and contribute to a better community.  Everything the Y does is in service of making us – as individuals and a community – better.


In March, The YMCA of Wooster will begin our annual campaign to raise the charitable funds needed to address the issues that concern you.  Every dollar donated to the YMCA of Wooster stays local and has a lasting impact on the people of our community. Your gift will build a better us by ensuring that the Y’s doors are open to all. Your support helps hundreds of youth and families live healthier and happier lives.  It enables kids to do better in school, attend Summer Camps and participate in youth sports and other programs.  

Yes, you know the challenges we face every day, but just like the Y, you see the opportunity to make a difference.  The Y is your partner, standing with you to strengthen our community. Make a donation today and take your first step in making a difference and building a better us. If you would like to hear more about what the Y does, you can contact me directly at 330-264-3131. 


For a better you. For a better community. For a better us.
