Proudly show your support of the DULUTH AREA FAMILY YMCA and its mission! Donate and get an upgraded “I GAVE” member key fob.

Join the “I GAVE” Team through our SUSTAINING MEMBER program which allows you to make a monthly charitable gift using your membership method of payment on file.

Sustaining Members pledge their support year-round for healthier children and families.

Why should I become a Sustaining Member?   We want you to give to the Y in the way that makes the most sense to you and is the most convenient for your giving needs. Monthly giving allows you to budget your donation and allows us to more effectively plan our programs and services.

In appreciation of pledging your sustaining support, any member who donates will be recognized with the “I GAVE” key fob and those who make a $10/month contribution or more qualify to receive a Y t-shirt after one year of giving.  All donations over $1,000 ($84/month or more) qualify for our Banner Giving Program and will receive acknowledgment on our website, social media, and with an appreciation banner which will hang in our lobby each year that continued level of giving is received.

I pay my dues, doesn’t that support the Y? Your membership fees are the backbone of all the Y does and we are so grateful that you have chosen us for your family’s health and wellness.

Y Membership fees keep the doors open, the lights on, and allow us to hire the best trainers and staff to serve you and your family.

Donations to the Y invite everyone inside and give them the opportunity to participate in all the Y has to offer, removing the financial barriers some face to becoming part of the Y community. Your donation ensures those who need us most have access to quality programs, activities, and facilities.

What amount am I expected to give?  Whether you can afford $5/month or $100/month, your support means so much to us. Every little bit makes a difference and together with our members the Y is making a lasting impact throughout our community. By members giving together, your $5 combined can total so much more!
