At the Y, we believe that every child should be able to experience the Y.
Gifts to our General Operating Support help us to keep membership and programs costs affordable while maintaining quality and timely delivery. Donating to the General Operating Support provides our YMCA with maximum flexibility to address funding gaps for programs and services.
BANNER RECOGNITION PROGRAM
Our members and friends call us THEIR Y. We call them OUR greatest resource—
the thousands of people who work alongside us and support our work to help our neighbors learn, grow and thrive.
Through our PARTNERS & PATRONS BANNER PROGRAM, our Y seeks to attract, recognize and honor those local partners who give substantial support to our Y that allows us to better serve our community. Our PARTNERS & PATRONS BANNER PROGRAM allows you to make an annual donation of $250 or more and we recognize your gift with a personalized banner displayed in our Wellness Center for one year. If you are ready to be a PARTNER OR PATRON of the Banner Campaign, complete the form and return to the Y and/or contact the Y for more information. Thank you for your consideration and continued support!
GIVE IN THEIR HONOR AND MEMORY
If you have a loved one who has been impacted by the Waynesboro Area YMCA, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor them, while supporting our mission. Your memorial or tribute gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a difference in the lives of those we serve. For memorial donations, please email us the contact information of their family so we may notify them of your contribution.
In 1930, six high school graduates in Toward, Pa. created a group to continue beyond graduation with guidance from Emery M. Nelson, director of the State YMCA, and Miss Jean Holcomb, a high school English teacher and former Girl Reserve leader. They helped the young women develop the Gradale Sorority. This idea of Y-Gradale spread throughout Pennsylvania and in to Ohio and beyond.
When you make a donation to your Y, you help to fund life-changing community programs that promote healthy living, youth development, and social responsibility across the country. We can’t do it without YOU! Thank you for your continued support of the Y as we continue to help build stronger communities for all.
Thank you to our many partners in the Waynesboro Area YMCA Partners and Patrons Banner Recognition Program. The Banner Recognition Program is our special way of saying thank you to our donors and serves as a visual reminder of the contributions that make a difference in our community.
From preschool to wellness for older adults, no other organization can impact as many, as powerfully, as the Y does every day.
