Imagine a better tomorrow

More than $2 million is needed now to help preserve the Y’s ability to meet future obligations and serve the community while the economy and consumer confidence recover.

Over the past 135 years, the YMCA of Central Florida has endured and persevered through many challenging times that have beset our community from devastating winter freezes, the Great Depression, and World War II. Today, we’re facing another challenge together: the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Due to both precautionary and mandated measures stemming from the pandemic, YMCA facilities and programs were shut down for 10 weeks. The financial toll on the Y from the pandemic has been swift and severe. It’s challenged and threatened the Y’s very ability to sustain vital programs, locations, and services that our neighbors and staff rely upon. These factors point to a solemn forecast, without intervention and community support, our Association will be forced to drastically consolidate.

On behalf of all who rely on the Y’s life-changing services and our dedicated Y staff, we’re asking for your generous support during this critical time of need. Your gift will help sustain the YMCA of Central Florida so we can continue to provide the vital services that help provide our neighbors a safe place to belong and stay healthy in spirit, mind, and body.
