Your participation with the YMCA will bring meaningful change not just within yourself, but to others in our community.

When you support the Y, you join an organization that offers more health, more hope and more opportunity to children, to teens, to adults, and to families.  Read Our Impact Statement

TYPES OF GIVING

COMMUNITY SUPPORT CAMPAIGN

Each year, the Duluth Area Family YMCA rallies the support of the community with its Community Support Campaign. This is a time when community members, businesses, foundations, YMCA volunteers, and staff come together and give generously to help guarantee that everyone can benefit from life-changing Y experiences.

Whether due to unemployment, poor health, financial hardship or other special circumstances, people struggle to provide for their families. Only by working together can we give more kids the opportunity to grow strong in spirit, mind, and body. Contributions received from our community support campaign efforts allow us to provide the growing number of scholarships awarded to individuals and families in need of vital Y programs and services.

Double Your Donation 

An easy way to double your contribution is through employee giving programs.

Many corporations match employee donations (or the tax deductible component of your membership) to our organization. If you volunteer with us, your employer may also provide us with a grant as a way to recognize your ongoing support.

Thanks for checking to see if your company offers these programs!

GIFTS OF SECURITIES AND STOCKS

By donating appreciated stocks, bonds, and mutual fund shares that have been owned for more than one year, donors can avoid capital gains tax. They also receive an income tax deduction for the fair market value of the gift. A security’s gift value is determined by its fair market value on the day you make the gift. To make a gift of securities or stock, please contact Kevin Peterson for specific instructions at 218-722-4745 ext. 173 or kpeterson@duluthymca.org
