This past year, the New Canaan YMCA provided the equivalent of nearly $285,000 in financial assistance to the community thanks to the generous support of donor contributions to the Y’s Annual Support Campaign. Financial assistance ensures that no one is ever turned away from the opportunity to maintain a healthy lifestyle at the Y, regardless of financial circumstances.
“The New Canaan YMCA has been the single most important resource while raising my three young kids in New Canaan and living paycheck to paycheck. Each of my kids has continually experienced an education, friendships, sports, summer camp fun and caring support which I couldn’t have received anywhere else because it was only thanks to the YMCA financial aid we receive that we could afford these experiences for our children. For years the YMCA has made it possible for my children to have all the wonderful experiences they deserve. I will always be grateful for this amazing Y community.”
“There are families in every community who need a helping hand,” said New Canaan YMCA’s Executive Director, Craig Panzano. “The Y’s financial assistance program ensures that every child, adult, senior, and family has the opportunity to thrive at the Y regardless of economic situation. We are so grateful to our generous donors who make these opportunities possible for so many individuals within our community.”
