You Can Be the Difference
Simple acts of kindness can have a large and lasting impact.
When we give our time and expertise, donate food and clothing, or make monetary contributions - both large and small - together, we strengthen our community. The YMCA of Collier County is participating in GivingTuesday, a global generosity movement built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses, and communities all around the globe.
Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday kicks off the giving season. This year, Giving Tuesday takes place on November 29. What makes it so special? It’s 100% driven by people inspired to make a positive difference - people just like you. The Y is committed to helping our community build a stronger, healthier, and better us. We hope you’ll consider contributing to the Y. Every gift - no matter how big or small - makes an enduring impact right here in our neighborhood.
WAYS TO SUPPORT THE Y:
Focused on long-term sustainability, the Annual Support Campaign benefits programs like out-of-school enrichment, drowning prevention, and community health. It also goes toward Y scholarship fund, operational expenses, and outreach efforts.
Hurricane Relief Fund
As you can imagine, individuals and families are in need of items that may have been lost or damaged in the storm. Join the YMCA of Collier County and its recovery efforts by helping people rebuild their lives and find hope for the future.
Water Safety & Swim Lessons
Teaching children how to be safe around water is not a luxury; it is a necessity. The YMCA’s Safety Around Water and YMCA Swimming Lesson programs help make sure kids learn essential water safety skills, which can prevent the tragedy of drowning.
The YMCA invites you to help brighten the holiday season for Y families in need with our annual Giving Tree. With a simple gift donation, you’ll help make a difference in the lives of families needing a little extra love this holiday season.
Send a Kid to Camp
Now, more than ever, we recognize that children in our community are looking forward to being able to reconnect with friends and continue fun activities while parents are searching for a safe environment for their kids. By choosing to donate below, you can help to provide local families with the opportunity to attend Summer Day Camp at the Y, where children can learn, grow, and thrive.
