This year you have an extraordinary opportunity to help make our community better. Giving Tuesday is December 3 and you can join the movement to give to the Greater Joliet Area YMCA.
What is #GivingTuesday?
#GivingTuesday is a day dedicated to giving back. Coinciding with the Thanksgiving Holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday’s goal is to inspire personal philanthropy, volunteerism, and encourage bigger, better and smarter giving during the holiday season.
Can I Give to the Y?
Yes! Your gift on #GivingTuesday will benefit our scholarship assistance program, which helps to ensure that no one is turned away from the Y due to the inability to pay. With your help, local families will have the opportunity to experience a variety of YMCA programs—from group fitness classes to before and after school programs, and everything in between.
You can #BeTheGood and make a difference in the life of Y family. Every gift matters. Everyone has a role to play. Together, we can achieve so much more.
TWO WAYS TO GIVE
- Make an online donation the Y’s Annual Campaign.
- Visit the Giving Tree at your YMCA and select an ornament with the dollar amount of your choosing. Present your ornament to a staff member at the Membership Desk. Your tax-deductible donation can be made by cash, check, or charged to the payment information you have on file.
And as a reminder, if you give $50 or more from now through December 31, you could win a free 6-month family membership for you and another free 6-month family membership for a friend.
