Annual Giving Campaign
The Annual Giving Campaign is the Rye YMCA’s annual appeal to raise funds which underwrite youth and family programs as well as provide financial aid. Over the last three years, the Y’s financial assistance awards have more than tripled, from $140,000 in 2008 to $508,000 in 2012. To meet this continuing increase in requests for financial assistance, the Y’s Annual Giving Campaign is one of our highest priorities across all levels of the Rye Y family.
The campaign’s appeal takes many forms, including sending letters and pledge cards throughout the year to members of the community. Our Board of Directors is also directly engaged in reaching out to friends and neighbors to help explain the urgency of our fundraising initiatives. Events such as the Derby, Golf Outing and March Madness also support the Annual Giving Campaign.
Your gift allows our doors to remain open and accessible to all regardless of financial circumstances. In these economic times, your annual gift is more important than ever to help sustain financial aid, subsidize programs, and support vital community outreach services that only the Y can provide.
Program and membership fees do not cover the requests for help the Rye YMCA receives each year. Please give today. It’s a simple way to help strengthen the building blocks of our community: youth development, healthy living for all, and social responsibility.
