2017 YMCA of Greater Boston Annual Campaign


Adventure, Exploration, Friendship, Fun, Leadership, Family

We sent 140 kids to camp in Summer 2017 thanks to your help with the Giving Tuesday Challenge last year. We'd like to beat that this year, but we need your help! This campaign is an annual competition between all branches of the YMCA of Greater Boston. The branch that gets the most donations $25 or more will be awarded an additional $5,000.

If you're reading this, odds are North Woods Summer Camp, Pleasant Valley Summer Camp, or Sandy Island Family Camp has affected your life in one way or another. Maybe you've been a camper, maybe camp is a huge part of your child's summers. This is an opportunity for you to help young people experience all camp has to offer, who otherwise wouldn't get that opportunity.

Giving Tuesday is a two week competition that begins on November 14th and ends on Giving Tuesday (November 28th).

Our community faces new challenges that create a greater need for the work of the Y. Fortunately, where some see obstacles, we see the opportunity to make a difference.

Building a stronger community is a cause that is important to this team. That’s why we are proud to come together to volunteer and fundraise for the YMCA.

The YMCA has been helping people throughout the Greater Boston community to learn, grow and thrive for more than 165 years. Whether it’s addressing the academic achievement gap, supporting individuals facing chronic diseases or providing financial assistance so that all people may access our programs and services, the Y is there to meet the challenge. The Y counts on its donors to continue to make this meaningful work possible.

Together we can make a difference in the lives of thousands of young people and families who will turn to the Y for encouragement and support. Everything the Y does is in service of making us – as individuals and a community – better.

Together we can achieve so much more. Every gift makes a difference. Everyone has a role to play. Please support our team by joining us in making a gift today.
