The YMCA Partnership with Youth Campaign annually raises funds for financial assistance programs at the YMCA. The YMCA offers this support for qualifying youth and families to participate in YMCA programs and membership. No one is ever turned away from YMCA membership or programs due to lack of funds, and the YMCA Partnership With Youth Campaign helps make that possible. The Nishna Valley Family YMCA 2010 Partnership With Youth Campaign's goal is $80,000. 100% of each dollar donated to the Partnership With Youth Campaign goes directly to not only youth and family services but to many others such as:

Youth Programs 30%
Scholarships 40%
Afterschool care 5%
Summer Yers 5%
Splash Water 10%
(Safety program to All Atlantic 2nd graders.)
Jr. High 10%
(After School solutions program.)


  • Fact: All of the money raised in this Campaign is used to support the Y's programs and memberships for children, teens and families in the Nishna Valley community.
  • Fact: The YMCA uses contributed funds to ensure that those who are unable to pay the stated fees are able to participate.
  • Fact: The Y's financial assistance program is made possible primarily through the funds raised in this annual campaign.
  • Fact: Membership dues only cover the day-to-day operational costs of the YMCA facility. Membership dues do not support the financial assistance program or the array of programs we offer to youth.

Donations are accepted year round for the Partnership With Youth Campaign. To learn more about the Partnership With Youth Campaign (Opens/Downloads PDF).
