TOGETHER WE CAN BUILD A BETTER US
When you give to the Y, you are supporting programs that make Norfolk a better place to live.
As a locally based nonprofit organization, our number one priority is to serve this community. So every tax-deductible dollar you donate directly affects all of us in the best possible way: through before- and after-school care, swim lessons, health & wellness for seniors, diabetes prevention, summer camps, teen leadership, family activities, senior social hours and, of course, scholarships that ensure our doors are always open for those most in need.
See the results. Please consider a gift to your neighborhood YMCA.
Encourage the physical and emotional well-being of adult cancer survivors through the LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA program, offered at no cost to participants.
Support the academic achievement and wholistic development of school-age children through the Before- and After-School program.
Help adults with Parkinson’s disease combat their symptoms through the Rock Steady Boxing program.
Provide transformative summer camp experiences for youth that encourage character development and prevent summer learning loss.
Ensure adults of all income levels have access to chronic disease prevention and restorative health programs through Open Doors scholarship assistance, such as the Diabetes Prevention Program and the Transitions program.
Keep our community safe around water through swim programs for outside child-care centers who otherwise would not have access to a swimming pool.
