The Gaston County Family YMCA has launched its 2015 Annual Giving Campaign, which runs from March 2 to April 30,  to ensure that everyone in Gaston County has access to vital community programs and resources that support youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

Every day, the Gaston County Family YMCA works to support the people and neighborhoods that need it most by addressing community issues, such as school readiness, chronic diseases and food insecurity.

Through public support and contributions to the Gaston County Family YMCA and its branches, we are able to provide access to quality programs and services to everyone regardless of ability, gender, age, or socio-economic status. We thrive on serving as many people in the community as possible, but cannot do so without your help. Every day nearly 100 programs and services help shape our neighborhoods, but the call for assistance keeps growing.

Through the Annual Giving Campaign, the Gaston County Family YMCA provided over $255,500 in financial assistance to over 5800 participants, which included youth, adults, seniors and families throughout our community

Due to the generosity of our donors, the Y turned no one who qualified for financial assistance away due to an inability to pay. Through giving, you can make an immediate life-altering impact on the lives of many people in our community.

Every gift makes a difference. A gift can be made by using a pledge form or clicking on the link below.
