SOUTH SHORE YMCA

Leave Your Mark

THE CAMPAIGN TO BUILD A BETTER SOUTH SHORE YMCA

At the South Shore YMCA’s annual summer social event for over 100 of its top supporters, the South Shore Y launched the public phase of its bold new “Leave Your Mark” capital campaign to revitalize and expand the South Shore YMCA for generations to come.

The goal of this campaign is to raise $12 million for site expansion and vital renovations that will empower the Y to improve and expand its core offerings and better serve more members into the future, with a focus on family programming, early learning, medical wellness, summer camp, and outdoor education.

THE IMPACT OF YOUR GIFT

• Safe, quality Early Learning space for over 100 more preschoolers and 160 Afterschool children, welcoming more families to our extended family support system creating connections and a place to belong.

• Additional Summer Camp opportunities for 920 more youths annually to engage with peers, explore passions, test their limits and launch themselves confidently toward adulthood.

• New Family programming facilities, including pools, interactive STEM education exhibits, fields and courts, where members of all generations can play, grow, and thrive together.

• Expanded capacity to welcome new annual Medical Wellness program participants through new facilities, equipment, and space for collaborative partners.

TESTIMONIALS

 

“The Y is a special place that does a lot for all its Members. It has evolved over the years to provide special services and programs to a diverse Membership that needs the Y to be there for them. I have been involved for about 30 years because of the special work that the Y does and the fact that the Y never says no to anyone who needs help.” — Paul Mollica, Capital Campaign Committee Member, Active Y Member, Donor, Volunteer and past Executive Board Member


“We are grateful for the wholesomeness and well-being that the South Shore Y brings to the community. Our contributions to the Y have been among the best investments we have made. We are confident that they will continue to pay dividends for years to come.” — Herb & Paulie Emilson
