TOGETHER WE CAN BUILD A BETTER US
When you give to the Y, you are supporting programs that make Chesapeake 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.
Teaching children to swim is critical in a region surrounded by water. The Y's All Kids Swim program teaches 900 kindergartners life-saving water safety skills each year at no charge.
Providing transformative summer camp experiences for 80 youth each day encourages character development and prevents summer learning loss.
Supporting the academic achievement and wholistic development of school-age children in after-school programs levels the playing field by nurturing every child's potential.
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.
Offer scholarship assistance for youth sports programs that teach game fundamentals, character values and sportsmanship.
