Press release:

“Part of the Y’s charitable mission is the philosophy that we never turn away someone with an inability to pay for membership or programs” says Jeff Townsend, executive director. “To that end, we raise funds annually through the Strong Communities Campaign to help subsidize scholarships for the youths, teens, adults, families and seniors in our community."

  • This year’s campaign runs from Feb. 1st – March 31st.
  • Our goal is to raise $47,000.
  • We want to positively impact at least 800 people’s lives in the Greater Genesee Community.
  • Reaching our goal will ensure that children and families regardless of their socioeconomic status, will have the chance to benefit from the important lessons of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility through YMCA programs and services.

At a kick-off event held Tuesday night, Townsend reported some early success, noting that the Y has already raised $14,053 or almost 30 percent to their goal.

“We need your help to make this community wide impact as successful as possible!” Townsend said.

Please consider a gift to support and help the YMCA achieve this year’s goal and help make our community stronger for all.

Press release:

The GLOW YMCA on Tuesday announced a second year of record-breaking support as they raised just over $106,000 in its annual Strong Communities Campaign, exceeding a $104,000 association goal.

“We had so much incredible support," said Rob Walker, CEO of the GLOW YMCA. "We couldn’t have done it without our volunteers, members, vendors, staff and community supporters. I would like to publically thank the 559 contributors that helped us exceed our goal."

Walker offered special thanks to Joseph Bellardo, Elizabeth Skakowski, Lance Mark, Wayne Purdy and Christopher White, all of whom volunteered their time, treasure and efforts to lead this year’s campaign.

The Genesee Branch specifically raised $45,113 or 101percent of its 2018 goal. With 85 new donors and 194 renewed donations we had 279 very generous donors help us to achieve this year’s campaign record.

The money raised helps the YMCA meet its charitable mission by offering scholarship support to children, families and seniors in our community that otherwise could not afford to experience the many benefits of the YMCA.

“The Genesee County YMCA is dedicated to identifying the needs of our community and helping to be a part of the solution,” said Jeff Townsend, YMCA executive director. “In 2017 we supported over 650 children, adults, families and seniors with YMCA scholarship assistance.

"So far in 2018, we are on target to help over 700 individuals and families in our community.”

As a leading nonprofit for strengthening community, gifts made to the annual Strong Communities Campaign help the Y advance programming and services that support youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. More importantly, 100 percent of gifts made will make a direct impact on the residents in our communities.
