Each year, thousands of volunteers help us make our community a better place to live through the Valley of the Sun YMCA’s Annual Campaign. Donations to the Annual Campaign provide outreach and scholarships for programs such as drowning prevention, youth sports, healthy living, summer day and overnight camps, teen leadership and more.
THE ANNUAL CAMPAIGN IS ABOUT PEOPLE
The YMCA is a place where everyone is welcome, regardless of race, age, religion or financial standing. The Annual Campaign raises funds for families who cannot otherwise fully afford YMCA programs and services. It focuses specifically on providing children and teens with safe outlets, positive role models and opportunities to achieve their full potential.
IT PROVIDES RESOURCES TO SUPPORT THOSE IN NEED
Campaign contributions are invested in people. One-hundred percent of the money raised goes directly to programs and services for children, teens, adults and families. It does not cover general overhead or campaign expenses.
The Annual Campaign enables the Y to provide life-changing experiences and makes our whole community stronger through tutoring, mentoring, camping, aquatics, sports, wellness and other vital programs and services, assuring that no one is turned away due to an inability to pay.
IT’S AN OPPORTUNITY TO HELP OTHERS AND GIVE BACK TO OUR COMMUNITY
The Valley of the Sun YMCA is a 501(c)(3) charity and one of the oldest and largest philanthropic organizations in the state, dedicated to helping children and families live healthier, more productive lives in spirit, mind and body.
Our YMCA needs volunteers like you to make the Annual Campaign possible.
Annual Campaign volunteers are passionate about the YMCA and the good we do in our communities. They visit YMCA programs and learn how we make an impact every day. They meet face-to-face with donors and discover what motivates each donor to give. They thank donors and attend Annual Campaign events, such as kick-offs and victory celebrations.
