At the Greater Valley YMCA, we are more than just a gym; we are a movement providing opportunities for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility for all. At the Greater Valley YMCA, your contribution is more than just a donation; it is a community investment unleashing endless possibilities for a child, family or active older adult in need. At the Y, we believe that every neighbor deserves a chance to learn, grow and thrive with peers regardless of their ability to pay your gift helps the Y remain accessible for all. Thanks to you, the Greater Valley YMCA is a possibility for many in need.
Day in and day out, your support helps a child learn how to swim, an adult recover from open heart surgery, and an active older adult find a new support system. In 2017 alone, you helped us gift over $940,000 in financial assistance to community members throughout the Lehigh Valley. Check out our "Y Stories" for more on how your gift empowers your neighbors.
Like each person who walks through our doors, we recognize that each gift made to the Greater Valley Y is unique. We would love to explore how your gift interests can help make the Lehigh Valley community better together. For more information on giving, please contact our Chief Development Officer by calling 610 438 6065.
Join the Y
Households across out community have different needs so we offer a variety of membership types. Each of our location offers many different programs, schedules, and classes therefore offering and fees may vary by branch.
Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. At The Y, no child, family or adult is turned away due to an inability to pay.
Financial assistance awards are assessed on a case by case basis during a one-on-one, confidential session with a staff member.
