Leave Your Mark

THE CAMPAIGN TO BUILD A BETTER SOUTH SHORE YMCA

In 2019, at the South Shore YMCA’s annual summer social event for over 100 of its top supporters, the South Shore Y launched 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 our Y to improve and expand our core offerings and better serve more members in the future, with a focus on family programming, early learning, medical wellness, summer camp, and outdoor education.

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
