More Than A Gym
At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Through group exercise classes, youth programs, swim lessons, adult health programs, and more, we aim to build a healthier Monroe County. Every day, we work side by side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income, or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive
To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.
Our history dates back to the founding of the first YMCA in England in 1844, but so much has happened since then! Scroll down for a photographic history of the Monroe County YMCA.
We're Here for You

Y For All Annual Campaign
The financial assistance provided through the Y For All Annual Campaign keeps the Y available for kids, families, and adults who need us the most.
Although camp, swim lessons, and group exercise might be some of the first things that come to mind, we have so many other services and offerings like:
- Early Childhood Education and closing the achievement gap in the YMCA Center for Children and Families and Preschool Programs.
- Chronic Disease Prevention through the YMCA Commit to Get Fit and YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program, which help people develop maintainable, healthy lifestyle habits.
Providing assistance through Y For All contributions to make sure everyone can benefit from the Y, regardless of their age, income, or background.
Strong Past, Bright Future: Capital Campaign
The Capital Campaign is bringing us into the next stage of the YMCA's bright future.
New facilities, such as the Gymnastics Center and the NW YMCA, have brought great changes to the people of Monroe County, expanding our capacity to serve the health and well-being of thousands more people.
While construction is complete, financially supporting these projects is a goal that takes many years to accomplish! You can make a lasting impact on our YMCA community by contributing to our bright future!
Give to the Future: Endowment and Planned Giving
When you give to the Endowment Fund, your support continues to impact lives long after your gift is made.
Gifts of $10,000 or more designate the donor as a member of the Heritage Club. Some donors choose to make Planned Gifts through estate plans, outright gifts, or pledges.
