WE BELIEVE THAT WE CAN BUILD A STRONGER COMMUNITY TOGETHER...
When you give to the YMCA of Thomasville you make a difference. Since 1903 we’ve been meeting the needs of our community one person a time, one life changing experience at a time. The Y is the nation’s leading nonprofit for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, and your gift makes a meaningful, enduring impact right here in Thomasville and ThomasCounty. .
We offer multiple ways to meet your personal giving goals:
- Our Annual Giving Campaign provides financial assistance for programs, memberships and camps for youth and families in need
- Your Charitable Gift insures every Y facility is safe, secure, up-to-date and designed to meet the ongoing needs of our community
- Planned Giving assures that for generations to come Y programs will continue to change lives
We believe in wise stewardship
Thanks to a balanced operational structure that allows the YMCA of Thomasville to offset fundraising expenses with revenues from membership and programs fees, 100% of contributed dollars go directly to their intended purposes. The structure has been one of the organization’s greatest strengths since the Y’s founding in Thomasville in 1903.
We believe in meaningful change
The YMCA policy is that no child, adult or family is turned away for inability to pay. We provide financial aid to over thousands of people a year. When you give to the Y you become part of the fabric of the community through:
- Three branches that serve diverse communities with diverse programs, from free after school mentorship to ensuring no child goes hungry during the summer.
- Partnerships with several key organizations throughout the community, including schools, the hospital and numerous other not for profits.
- Thousands of children who each year are part of programs as diverse as youth sports, healthy eating, swimming, fit kids, and more
- More than 140 classes every week in which our 9,000 members work toward a healthy life, in fitness classes.
We believe in making a difference
Each year volunteers at our YMCA contribute their time to make a meaningful difference in you life, and in theirs. Over 9,000 people come through our doors. More than 100 staff work to provide services. A gift you make today is a crucial part of making the promise come true: youth development, healthy living and social responsibility right now, and for years to come, here in Thomas County.
