Support the Y

THE Y. SO MUCH MORE

Annual Campaign Fund

While the Y is focused on healthy living for all, we also believe that goes beyond just a workout. We work to strengthen bodies, but also minds and communities. As a nonprofit organization, we strive to ensure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive.

That’s why we ask our community to collaborate with us in supporting our programs that mean so much to our friends and neighbors. These programs have helped countless individuals and families in their time of need, and we want to continue to make a positive impact each and every day. Contributions to the Annual Campaign support the growing need for vital Y programs and services in our communities.

No gift is too small – your support means more than you know.

"Each day, I pick up my boys from the Y and they are so happy. The financial assistance we receive from the Y means everything to me. I know my children are safe, learning, and making friends. It allows me to focus on work without worry. The Y has changed our lives by bringing us all good things. ‘Thank you’ just doesn’t seem enough for all the Y has done for my family." — Angelina

Strengthen Tomorrow Endowment Fund at Somerset Hills YMCA

Our wonderful volunteers, who are ambassadors of the Y’s mission, have played a significant and vital role in helping us to build our endowment fund to over $4 million in the last 3 years. We are so grateful to everyone who contributed to setting the foundation for future growth.

The Endowment is a permanent fund and a vital source of perpetual support for Somerset Hills YMCA, a branch of Greater Somerset County YMCA. Endowment principal is not spent. It is carefully managed to yield a steady, reliable and perpetual stream of funding that is independent of operating revenue and other fluctuating income sources. Through prudent investment and judicious stewardship, the purchasing power of endowed funds grows over time.

Endowment income provides financial stability and allows a community service organization like our Y to pursue and implement long range planning initiatives with confidence – to continue to offer financial assistance to those who can’t afford program and membership fees, to fund important mission-based programs, and to expand our outreach to underserved members of the community, among many other challenges.

In short, the Endowment Fund, with major donor support, will be the vital bridge from today to tomorrow, filling the void and making sure we’re there for the next generation.
