  • Be a Part of Something Bigger

    Contribute to Our Annual Campaign Today!

    The YMCA has been called the “alphabet soup” of social services because we address a variety of needs through our innovative and values-driven programming. In an ever-changing world, we answer each community’s call for help with open arms, working alongside partners like schools and healthcare providers to help our neighbors thrive.

    Last year, the four branches within the Greater Joliet Area YMCA answered 8,000 calls for help in the form of $1.1 million in scholarship assistance to make our facilities and services accessible to all. Each year, that need grows. And yet our arms open wider.

    At the YMCA, no one is turned away due to the inability to pay.
    We maintain this commitment thanks to donations from generous folks like you.

    Consider a meaningful gift to the YMCA this year. Your contribution represents an investment in our neighbors, friends and community’s future.
