With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, strengthening communities is our cause. At the Y, we believe that lasting personal and social change happens when we all work together. Every day we work side-by-side with our neighbors and community leaders to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.
When you give to the Y, you are funding life-changing programs that help over 800 children, adults and families in Northwestern Connecticut to learn, grow and thrive.
When you support the Northwest CT YMCA, you strengthen our community and you make a better us. As one of the nation’s leading nonprofit organizations, the Y uses your gift to make a meaningful, enduring impact right in your own local area.
Your donation ensures those who need us most have access to quality programs, activities and facilities.
You can choose to designate where you want your money to go (Torrington Y, Winsted Y, Canaan Family Y, Strong Kids Campaign, Winchester Youth Service Bureau, WYSB Rising Star Camp Scholarships, Literacy Volunteers ) or you can simply allow us to use your gift where it is needed most.
