“You Make More Possible” Annual Support Campaign

The Edwardsville YMCA’s Annual Campaign seeks the support and assistance of our business community, members and the people of the communities we so proudly serve. Our “You Make More Possible” Annual Support Campaign will seek donations every year to assist in the funding of the Edwardsville YMCA’s Financial Assistance Program. In 2019, we contributed over $270,000 in memberships, programs, childcare and facility usage to those in need through our financial assistance program. We raised almost $181,000 of this through our 2019 Annual Campaign. The campaign provides YMCA services to those that want and need the services of the YMCA but are not in a position to pay related membership or program fees. You can be a part of this great effort and help those that need assistance by being a volunteer and contributing to the campaign. Every gift makes a difference. Everyone has a role to play. Together, we can do so much more.
