Annual Support Campaign

COUNT ON THE Y: New Canaan YMCA 2020 Annual Support Campaign  

THIS YEAR’S GOAL: $300,000

Co-Chairs: Kevin Cowser, Pam Norton, and Rick Routhier

Every year, thanks to the generous support of our donors, thousands of kids, adults, seniors, and families—each with a different need, challenge, or goal—are able to count on the Y.

This year, more than ever, we are counting on your support to make a lasting difference in the lives of so many.


Financial Assistance

In 2019, we awarded the equivalent of over $285,000, ensuring no one is ever turned away from living a healthier, happier life at the Y.

Anyone who needs a helping hand can always count on the Y.

 


Special Needs Programs

Our Y offers a welcoming and inclusive environment for all.

Through meaningful programs and services, over 130 children, teens, and adults with special needs feel confident they can count on the Y.

 


Mission-Based Programs

Some of the life-changing programs for seniors, kids, cancer survivors, and others do not cover their costs, yet these vital programs remain available.

Those who benefit from these programs count on the Y.

 


World Service

In our thirteenth year of partnership, our Y proudly provides life-saving funds and support for meals, water, education, and medical attention to the Facing the Future child development center in Kibera, Kenya.

The special children at Facing the Future desperately count on the Y.

 


The effects of COVID-19 have taken a significant toll on membership and program revenue, both critical components for funding the Y’s operations and support for our community. We anticipate the next year to remain full of challenges for our community and our Y. The Y will continue to face economic challenges, yet the need for healthy living, youth development, and emotional well-being will only continue to grow as we recover as a community. This year, with operational revenue temporarily in flux, incremental PPE and safety expenses, and growing community needs, we are relying on the additional support of our friends and community to help protect, sustain, and allow our Y to emerge from this period stronger than ever.

We’re up for the challenge, but we’re counting on your support.  

Donate online to the 2020 Annual Support Campaign to help preserve our Y and our community impact during this challenging time.
