2021 Season of Possibilities


'Tis the season for giving and the Y is the perfect place to start making a difference in someone’s life today. Make a positive impact in our Lehigh Valley Community with your contribution. 



Every family has a story, and no two families are the same.

At the Y, we’re here to lift up all families, regardless of background, financial means, makeup, or wherever they may be in their journeys. 


For moms like Elizabeth (or Liz, as Y staff affectionately refer to her), this meant turning to the Y when becoming a single foster care mom. Click the video below to learn how the Y has impacted Liz and her children:

Throughout the pandemic and beyond, the Y is here to support our
Lehigh Valley youth, families, adults and seniors,
who are all a part of our Y family and story.
During this season of giving, would you please consider a
$25, $50, or even a $250 gift 
to help the Y support more neighbors in 2022?  
As we think about the importance of connection and care this season,
we thank you for gifting Lehigh Valley families like Liz’s with new possibilities at the Y.
We send gratitude to every member of our Y family this holiday season. 
From all of us to all of you, we wish you a year filled with health, happiness, and endless possibilities.



We are grateful to all of our generous Greater Valley YMCA partners and supporters! Your support ensures we are able to continuously provide care and services to those in need throughout our entire community.

Financial Assistance


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. Those interested in applying for our financial assistance program are encouraged to download this form in English or download this form in Spanish, or stop in to any of our branches to learn more and pick up an application.
