PUTTING PHILANTHROPY IN MOTION...
Every year, Haselwood YMCA works to raise money for programs that support our community. The Annual Campaign provides opportunities to those in our community that might not be able to afford them otherwise. Money raised during the Annual Campaign provides financial aid so that every child can enjoy learning to dance. Every child has access to the Y or our programs regardless of their ability to pay.
We are encouraging our youth to learn how philanthropy works in our community. This past winter session, 20% of the youth participating in our Dance program received some form of financial aid from the YMCA. This year, our goal is to raise enough money to fully fund 2 youths participating in Dance. It is a modest goal of $1,440 and one that could make such a difference in the lives of our young artists and performers.
Each student is encouraged to reach out to their personal community, family and friends, and ask them to join us in putting philanthopy in motion by joining our team and helping us raise money for the Haselwood YMCA Annual Campaign. You can use the "Donate Now" donate directly or join the team to campaign for your student. Every little bit helps and no donation is too small. From $5 to $500, thank you for supporting the Haselwood YMCA and the Arts & Cheer Departments.
We want to thank you and our students for giving to the Annual Campaign... for your gift, you will receive a signed Thank You card from the Haselwood YMCA staff. In addition, your name will be added to our 2020 Donors Wall above the Haselwood-Courter Enterprises Dance Studio which remains up through the end of the year.
If you have a dancer in our 2020 Spring Recital Program in May, we will have some thank you options for your donations. Please keep an eye out for more information from your dancer's instructors.
Each program has an individual goal of $1,400! Our reward for reaching our goal is a banner placed in the Y for everyone to see! You may have seen these banners hanging around the Y. We hope that you will join us in acheiving our goal! If you are interested in a seeing your name on a banner, please contact Edna Cabalfin at 360-307-4041 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHAT DO YOUR ANNUAL CAMPAIGN FUNDS GO TOWARD:
While YMCA membership fees allow the Y to be a gathering place in our community, it is the YMCA Annual Campaign that gives us the power to make that community stronger. When you give to the YMCA’s Annual Campaign you are supporting the varied programs the Y provides outside of our health and wellness activities.
YOU NURTURE KIDS.You give them summer day camp, youth sports, and before & after school care. They get safe places to learn, play, and thrive.
YOU SAVE LIVES.You give individuals swim lessons and health and wellness programs like Parkinson’s, Cancer Survivor, and Diabetes Prevention classes. People get support and opportunities to fight disease and live healthy.
YOU KEEP SENIORS YOUNG.You give older adults longevity and healthy aging. They get fitness programs that strengthen their bodies and activities that keep their minds sharp.
YOU HELP OTHERS.You give people with physical challenges moral support and specialized instruction. They get the tools to rebuild strength.
YOU SUPPORT FAMILIES.You give scholarships and financial support that make the Y possible. Every child gets a warm welcome and every individual can access programs for health and wellness. No one is ever turned away.
The YMCA Annual Campaign funds go where membership fees don’t. It powers critical programs and activities that keep kids safe, people healthy, and families strong. The Y needs your support to continue to make these services possible. Please donate today for a better us.
