The Edwardsville YMCA has a strong history of service to the greater Edwardsville/Glen Carbon area. Since its inception in 1949, the Y has been dedicated to enriching the lives of all individuals and families.
That is why the YMCA Financial Assistance Program has and always will be a high priority. Through that program, and because of your support, thousands of people have enjoyed the facilities, programs, and services offered by the YMCA. They are your friends, neighbors, coworkers, customers.
Through our Financial Assistance Program, we give people a helping hand whether it is for a membership or class, summer camp or even a spot at our Early Childhood Development Center. The need for assistance has grown dramatically over the years and now more than ever we need the support of our community, members and friends to lend a hand to help others.
Every gift makes a difference.
Everyone has a role to play.
Together, we can do so much more.
At the Edwardsville Y, strengthening community is our cause. We know when we work together, we move more individuals, families and our community forward. Every day, Y staff, volunteers, members, friends, and community partners work side-by-side to ensure that everyone can enjoy the YMCA.
Together, we can make this a reality for the YMCA and those that need and want our services. The possibilities are endless because of committed Y friends and generous donors like you.
