Give today for a stronger community tomorrow!
Together, We Can Achieve So Much More
The Y is here to give everyone in our community an opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive. When you give to the Y, your gift will have a meaningful, enduring impact right in your own neighborhood. Because the Y impacts lives in a variety of ways, we have different funds that allow you to designate how your gift will affect the community.
Thank you to our highest level of donors, our Founders. We could not help the Monroe County community without their continued support!

Y for All Scholarship Fund
The financial assistance provided through our Y for All Scholarship Fund keeps the Y available for kids, families, and adults who need us the most.
Although Summer Camp, Swim Lessons, and Group Ex might come to mind first, we have many more services and offerings that benefit our members, such as:
- Chronic disease prevention and rehabilitation through adult programming
- Community groups to foster relationships with neighbors
- Child watch services while you exercise
Through Y for All contributions, the Y is able to provide assistance to those in need, regardless of age, income, or background.

Donate 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, as well as significant planned gifts, designate the donor as a member of the Heritage Club. Some donors choose to make planned gifts through estate plans, outright gifts, or pledges.
Sponsor our Golf Outing
The Monroe County YMCA is hosting a Y for All Golf Outing at The Pfau Golf Course at Indiana University on Wednesday, June 23, 2021. Help give the gift of health and wellness to all ages in our Monroe County community through sponsorship opportunities. Sponsorship opportunities include recognition in all promotional materials for the event, team registration, and more.
Support our Facilities
Strong Past, Bright Future: Capital Campaign
The Capital Campaign is bringing us into the next stage of the YMCA's bright future. While our new facility expands our reach in the community, it's just as important to keep the existing facilities functioning and up-to-date for our members' safety and enjoyment. 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 a Gift at the Gala
YMCA Gala for a Cause
Our Monroe County Y hosts an annual gala to raise funds for our Y for All Scholarship Fund and to celebrate our network of generous donors. Attend the event as a donor, or become a sponsor and help the philanthropic evening be as impactful as possible.
