About 200 supporters stepped forward during the final weeks of 2023 to help us realize our full $60k board-led matching gift opportunity!

As a donor to the Y, you make the difference for so many of our neighbors between having no options and safe childcare; between a sedentary and active lifestyle; between loneliness and community. 

Thanks to our generous donors for helping us to accomplish big things in our community this year:
  • Provided essential child care for 98 children ages 0-5 at our Early Learning Center, 76% on scholarship. We could not keep this crucial community resource open without donors like you.

  • Provided a trusted place for 418 children to be in After School programs in Charlottesville and Greene County. Y donors help fund the sliding scale which assists 91% of our families in accessing this program.

  • Provided summer fun, social-emotional growth, and academic enrichment for 1,073 local young people at YMCA Summer Camps and Summer Academy in Charlottesville City Schools and Greene County Schools, 63% on scholarship.

  • Gave a safe space for summer recreation, fitness, and socializing with peers to 1,239 teens with our Free Summer Teen Membership, 100% on scholarship.

  • Taught 924 children how to swim, 21% on scholarship.

  • Served 9,652 Brooks Family YMCA members and 2,399 Sports and Aquatics program participants, 22% on scholarship.

Nobody is turned away for inability to pay.  But we can’t do it alone. 

YOU made the difference - and your gift this holiday season was DOUBLED up to $60,000 thanks to generous board-led matching gifts!

We couldn't do this without you, so thank you for making the difference in 2023! We are looking forward to an incredible 2024!

On behalf of the Y and the thousands of people who benefit from our programs – thank you for helping us reach our year-end goal!
