Open Letter Dan Wilcox, President & CEO

This faithful support and generosity allows us to positively impact and welcome neighbors of all ages and abilities, and provide them with opportunities they might not otherwise have. As we look to the future, we remain ever grateful for your commitment to the Y. We’re eager to continue furthering our mission together and continuing to strengthen our communities.

In gratitude,

Working Side-by-Side with Our Community in 100+ Neighborhoods

Every community needs a leader. Someone who brings people together, who compels others to action, and empowers every individual to be their best so the community can grow stronger and better together. Whether it’s trying a new recipe, joining a group exercise class, or simply staying social—we want to help you learn, grow, and thrive.
