We are proud to announce the success of the Summit Area YMCA’s Endowment Campaign which began just five years ago and has grown from $300,000 to over $5.3 million. A million thanks to all of those who have played a significant and vital role in helping us reach this remarkable goal. We appreciate each person’s active involvement and participation as ambassadors for the mission and fine work of the Y.
Since 1886, we’ve served our friends and neighbors in the community, and we will continue to dedicate ourselves on a daily basis to helping others. But we must also prepare for the needs that will arise in the years to come. Our Endowment Fund is there to meet future needs – to continue our open-door policy for those who can’t afford program and membership fees, to fund important programs and activities, and to expand our outreach to underserved members of the community, among many other challenges.
In short, the Endowment Fund, with major donor support, will be the vital bridge from today to tomorrow, filling the void and making sure we’re there for the next generation.
