2022 ANNUAL CAMPAIGN: BUILD BELONGING
At the Y, we believe that without Belonging, our work to create a more just and inclusive community for all will never be realized. Our welcoming network of support helps people from all walks of life find the encouragement and tools they need to thrive not regardless of who they are, but because of who they are.
Through our 2022 Annual Campaign, you can help 2,300 families access the YMCAs life-changing programs and services in Washtenaw County and southern Livingston County. Every gift makes a difference and moves us closer to our goal of $308,000.
Every day, the Y supports kids, adults and families who need us most with programs that protect, teach, connect, heal, nourish and encourage. It’s how we empower communities and the “us” who live in them to realize their incredible possibilities and full potential. We can’t do it alone. We count on the generosity of our donors to make a better us possible. Every dollar donated stays local and helps address our community’s most critical needs.

OUR TOP AREAS OF NEED:
The YMCA is one of Washtenaw County’s leading non-profits, acting as a catalyst for community transformation through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. In 2021, the Y provided just over $400,000 in support, services, and program subsidies to kids and families-in-need in Washtenaw County and southern Livingston County. Investing in people of all ages and backgrounds, particularly those who are farthest from opportunity, is key to advancing equity and justice while building whole-person health for all.
Health equity is achieved when everyone has the opportunity to be as healthy as possible and no one is disadvantaged because of race, gender, or other circumstances.
The YMCA Annual Campaign
In order to do this, it takes people of caring and commitment who realize that a vibrant YMCA ensures that everyone has the opportunity to live, grow and thrive.
