The Northampton County YMCA broke ground August 25, 2020 on the Eastern Shore of Virginia just a short distance from Cape Charles’ main street. This Y will be part of the YMCA of South Hampton Roads, serving southeast Virginia and northeast North Carolina.
Concern of insufficient youth programs, support for aging adults, swim safety, and healthy living access drove local partners, donors and the Y to collaborate in making these critical programs a reality through a newly constructed YMCA in Northampton County. A capital campaign to fundraise the cost of constructing the Y kicked off with key volunteers rallying for support from more than 40 donors. $4.5 million was raised in eight months – the fastest, widely supported capital campaign in the YMCA of South Hampton Roads’ history. With less than $50,000 remaining in the campaign, the Y is close to being 100% donor-funded.
