BELIEVE in their potential.

INSPIRE their success.

GIVE to their future.

At the Y, we take immense pride in our work to strengthen communities and help all of us be our best selves. 

We provide a place to play, to learn, to be healthy, to eat well and to give back. We give parents childcare, young adults job training, seniors a way to connect and children a safe place to go. 

We believe that everyone - no matter who they are or where they’re from - deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential. Everything the Y does is in service of making sure people and communities thrive.

The Annual Campaign provides financial assistance for memberships, child care and programs to local children and families in need. By supporting the Y, you help guarantee that everyone - regardless of their circumstances or ability to pay - can belong to a Y, participate in healthy values-based programs and improve their lives.

Last year, more than $1.4 million was provided through our Annual Campaign to help thousands of youth, adults and families receive financial assistance who could not afford the Y due to job loss, extended unemployment, underemployment, chronic health issues, medical bills or other hardships.

We need your philanthropic support to make it happen. Every gift makes a difference. Everyone has a role to play. Together, we can achieve so much more!

The YMCA of the Fox Cities is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and your gift is tax deductible. 100% of every dollar raised supports our Y and our community.

"After 12 years with the same company, I was told that the company was restructuring and as a result of this, my position was eliminated. Around the same time, a Y employee called me personally to see why I had not registered my youngest son for the upcoming basketball season. After telling him our situation, he told me he was going to see if there is something he could do for us. A couple hours later, I received a call back and was told the Y was willing to grant our family a temporary membership. Wow... while this was not asked for, or expected, it was greatly appreciated! This membership has not only allowed my son to play basketball and me the opportunity to coach his team, but it has also given my family a positive outlook, a safe place to go, a fun atmosphere to congregate with others, and has given us a sense of reassurance that good things do happen."
