Greater Joliet Area YMCA Earns Coveted 4-Star Rating from Charity Navigator
The Greater Joliet Area YMCA’s strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator. This is the fifth consecutive year that the Y has earned this top distinction. According to Charity Navigator, only seven percent of the charities they evaluate have ever received five or more consecutive 4-star ratings.
As one of the area’s leading nonprofit charities, the Greater Joliet Area YMCA is committed to strengthening local communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. A mainstay in the Joliet community for more than 85 years, the Y brings families closer together, encourages good health, and fosters connections through fitness, sports, fun and shared interests. Through its financial assistance and scholarship program, the Y works to fulfill its mission of ensuring that its programs are available to everyone and no one is turned away due to the inability to pay.
