Together, we’re 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.


Daily life has changed drastically in 2020 for nearly everyone. The financial impact of the pandemic has been swift, severe, and prolonged. The YMCA of Central Florida has experienced a decline in over half our revenue, and this crisis threatens the Y’s very ability to sustain vital programs, locations, and services our neighbors and staff rely upon. Focused on long-term sustainability, the Y established the IMAGINE Fund to raise critical resources necessary to address our immediate financial crisis. The IMAGINE Fund supports unrestricted operational expenses, urgent and pressing financial needs, programs and services, and community outreach efforts in response to the COVID-19 crisis.

My Y Stories - Neighbors

Taking Care of Our Neighbors

“It sounds cliché to say ‘the Y saved my life’ but it really saved us. We didn’t have a community. Now basically everything we need, I can ask my Y community for advice.”


“Swimming with the Y has not only taught me about commitment, but it has taught me about discipline and perseverance.”

Getting Access for Everyone

“That day, my pastor Brad said, ‘The church is going to sponsor the kids for summer camp.’ I didn’t tell them until we got to the camp the next week! It was a big blessing.”
