All kids deserve the life-changing opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. Your gift will ensure that everyone regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grown and thrive at the Y.

The Y is so much more than a gym. The Y is a cause- we’re a charity, dedicated to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. In Northwest CT the Y works to provide access for kids and families-to help them develop strong bodies, sharper minds and hopeful spirits.

Northwestern Connecticut faces new challenges that create a greater need for the work we do. Fortunately, where some see obstacles, we see opportunities for our members, volunteers, staff, and generous donors to make a difference. No other organization can impact as many people as powerfully as we do every day.

Last year, charitable gifts from YMCA donors made it possible to over 800 individuals of Northwestern Connecticut to live more vibrant lives by providing over $324,000 in financial assistance.

Every day, the Northwest CT YMCA works to support the people and neighborhoods that need it most, by ensuring that everyone in our community has access to vital programs and resources that support youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Help us reach our goal of $125,000.
