TYPES OF GIVING

ANNUAL CAMPAIGN

Each year, the YMCA of Greater Louisville rallies the support of the community with its Annual Campaign. This is a time when community members, businesses, foundations, YMCA volunteers and staff come together and give generously to help guarantee that everyone can benefit from life-changing Y experiences.

Whether due to unemployment, poor health, financial hardship or other special circumstances, people struggle to provide for their families. Only by working together can we give more kids the opportunity to grow strong in spirit, mind and body. Contributions received from our annual campaign efforts allow us to provide the growing number of scholarships awarded to individuals and families in need of vital Y programs and services.
