At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. We believe that positive, lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. That's why we focus our work in three areas:
The YMCA of Greater Des Moines is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. Through the generous support of donors, the Y provides financial assistance to individuals who demonstrate a need, as well as program support to key mission programs we fulfill for our community: Girls on the Run, Safety Around Water, fatherhood programming, out-of-school time programming such as PowerScholars, Starfish Academy, and enrichment camps, along with supportive housing for 140 men and women.
When you give to the Y, you are helping keep the Y accessible to all. Gifts of all sizes are accepted, and appreciated. Thank you for supporting the Y!
