Why Give to the Y

At the Y, all people are provided the opportunity to reach their fullest potential. No one is turned away due to the inability to pay. That’s our promise to the community, and our Annual Support Campaign makes it possible. The Annual Support Campaign provides financial assistance to families and individuals in the form of Open Doors Scholarships. Open Doors members are able to build a strong sense of community at the YMCA while they participate in transformational opportunities like swim lessons, summer camp, Active Older Adult activities, and more! 
The Y has always been there for our neighbors, and with your help, we can continue to serve everyone who needs the Y. We invite you to make an investment in your community through the Rowan-Cabarrus Y Annual Support Campaign. Think of those who rely on the Y for a sense of community, healthy living opportunities, and childcare – and consider the opportunities we can provide together.

Support Our Youth

Your gift helps Caleb, a child who is learning critical safety around water skills and gaining confidence as he learns new strokes in the pool. 

Invest in Families

Your support empowers Christine, a single mother, to accomplish her wellness goals while providing a safe place for her children to learn, grow and play during her workouts. 

Empower Veterans

Your gift supports veterans like Steven, who was injured in combat and relies on the YMCA to stay strong.
