MemberFest: May 30th - June 5th
We're kicking off our Annual Community Appeal at our Y Branches with MemberFest, a week-long celebration of fun and impact that showcases how the Y has been changing the lives of our members and the community for 125 years. Be sure to look for powerful stories of our impact around our Branches, and informational resources about how you can help us change lives.
Who We Are - Our Charitable Mission
The South Shore YMCA is a charity. Dollars raised through charitable gifts to our Change a Life Fund ensure financial assistance and accessibility to programs and services for all.
Why We Fundraise
Your Y membership and program fees cover the Y’s operating expenses. The financial assistance opportunities we provide are fully funded through charitable donations to the Y’s Change a Life Fund, which is raised annually.
100% of donations to the Change a Life Fund are used to ensure no one is ever turned away.

How We Fundraise
Each year, requests for donations to our Change a Life Fund are made to our Staff, Board, Members, and the Community to raise the funds necessary to keep the Y accessible to all.
Funds are also raised through Memorial Gifts, Planned Giving, Corporate Matching Gifts and our Signature Special Events: The Taste of the South Shore (March); Golf Classic (July); Rodman Ride (September); and Enchanted Evening Gala (November).
