Be The Change. Make A Difference.

Support the y

The YMCA of Greater Waukesha County plays such an important role as a safe, caring place for youth, adults, families, and seniors. Many people in our community rely on financial assistance to participate in the programs of the YMCA and create memorable stories of their own. Now, more than ever, we need your charitable donations to help make that happen. When you give to the YMCA’s Annual Support Campaign, 100% of your gift goes toward making a meaningful, enduring impact right in your own community. Gifts can be made online or mailed to your local Y.

The children, in colorful, casual clothing, are raising their hands and shouting joyfully. They stand on grass, under a bright, clear sky, creating a lively and festive atmosphere at the camp.


Your gift has a significant impact at various levels. A $1,000 donation supports six cancer survivors in reclaiming their health through the LIVESTRONG® program at the YMCA. A $500 donation funds water safety education for an entire elementary school class. With $250, a child can enjoy a week at YMCA Day Camp. A $100 donation provides a session of adaptive swimming lessons for a child with special needs. Lastly, $50 enables an adult with conditions like Arthritis or MS to participate in a Joint Efforts session, improving their muscle strength and joint support.
