Together, we are stronger
When you give to the Y, your gift will have a meaningful, enduring impact right in your own neighborhood.
We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together. That’s why strengthening community is our cause as a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization. We recognize that for communities to succeed, everyone must be given the opportunity to be healthy, confident, connected, and secure. As a nonprofit, the Y remains committed to providing the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive to everyone in our community regardless of circumstance.
We rely on generous donations from the public to ensure everyone has the chance to access our services. Your gift will help sustain the Y so we can continue to provide life-saving resources and remain a safe place to stay healthy in spirit, mind, and body.
Support the Y
Did you know there are several ways you can help support the YMCA of Collier County? You gift will make a major impact!
+ Annual Support Campaign
The YMCA of Collier County is so much more than a gym. We are a non-profit, charitable organization that has served this community for 55 years with programs focused on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
Every day, the Y plays a vital role in supporting various community needs, including school readiness, water safety & drowning prevention and combating chronic diseases. With the support of our donors and community, the Y does not turn anyone away due to their inability to pay, making sure ALL people have the opportunity to thrive.
+ Planned Giving & Endowment
Help shape the future of our community by giving to the Y in your will, trust, or IRA.
A bequest or beneficiary designation for the YMCA in your will, trust, retirement plan or life insurance policy is a gift that keeps on giving, year after year. A planned gift is a way to support the mission and programs that you believe in long after your lifetime. Together, we can strengthen our community for generations.

+ Send a Kid to Camp
All kids have great potential and deserve the opportunity to go to Summer Day Camp at the Y. Your generous gift ensures that no camper is denied the best summer ever because of the lack of financial resources.
+ Donate Your Car or Boat
Do you have a boat or car taking up room? You can free up space while supporting the Y! If you are interested in donating a boat or car, just call us and we'll take care of the rest.
When you donate your car or boat to the Marco YMCA you are sending a child in need to summer camp. You are purchasing new aquatics equipment for the swim team. You are growing out edible community garden at the Youth Development Center. You are giving opportunities to children who would not otherwise access them.
Every penny raised from the sale of your car or boat goes back to your community in a big way.
Email us at email@example.com to learn more or donate!
+ Give Where You Live
The YMCA is a proud partner of Give Where You Live Collier, our region’s awesome 24-hour online giving challenge. Give Where You Live Collier is Collier-wide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in our community through online giving.
+ Banner Recognition Program
BANNER RECOGNITION PROGRAM
The Y’s Annual Support Campaign provides financial assistance scholarships for youth, families and individuals in need of Y membership or programs. Your support ensures that everyone has a chance to belong and participate, regardless of circumstance, ability to pay or what zip codes they live in.
