The YMCA of Greater Houston works with our neighbors to ensure everyone, regardless of age, income or background has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive, regardless of ability to pay.

The needs of our community are diverse and evolving, and the Y is needed now more than ever. Together, we strive to create a stronger community and bring about meaningful change in our community.

The Annual Giving Campaign ensures that everyone has equal access to the resources and tools they need to thrive.

In the Greater Houston area, YMCA wellness facilities, one overnight camp and hundreds of program sites strive to empower youth, build healthier families and foster inclusive communities.

But the campaign is about more than just raising money. It is about the life changing impact that the YMCA provides. The child who gains confidence through learning opportunities, the active older adult who is no longer isolated and is living a healthy and active lifestyle, a family given opportunities to spend quality time together and so many more. The stories of those who are impacted by the Y have the power to unite and inspire.

Thanks to generous donors, we are able to fulfill this mission through low cost programs and direct financial assistance for families in need. One hundred percent of all dollars donated are invested into programs serving children and families in our community.
