On Thursday, March 28, over 100 volunteers and staff from our 15 branches and Camp Sky-Y gathered at Taking Stick Resort Arena to celebrate the progress of our 2019 TOGETHER WE CAN Annual Campaign. TOGETHER, the team has raised 85% of our goal of $1.7M! Although there is still some hard work to get across the finish line, the night also recognized top fundraising performers and the five branches who have surpassed their 2019 campaign goals: Tempe Family YMCA (105%), Southwest Valley Family YMCA (106%), Lincoln Family Downtown YMCA (130%), Scottsdale/Paradise Valley Family YMCA: (131%), and Flagstaff Family YMCA (149%).
The Annual Campaign is another unique way the Y creates leaders. It brings together staff at all levels, committed volunteers, Y members and donors to pursue a common objective: ensuring the YMCA has the resources to strengthen the community and make an enduring impact in the areas of youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. The funds we raise help provide financial assistance with child care, camp scholarships, memberships, program assistance like swim lessons, and teen leadership development — providing everyone the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive at the Y.
The team is working hard to close-out the campaign and there is still time to join us! Donate online. Membership dues pay for our day-to-day operations, but donations allow us to ensure that no one is turned away for their inability to pay.
Thank you to all who joined us in this journey For a Better Us. Your hard work and dedication is greatly appreciated!
