BENEFITING: YMCA of Greater Cleveland
Every day at our branches and through our programs, someone's life is positively impacted by their association with the Y. Partly that's because we're in a helping field, providing services and support for healthy living, youth development, and social responsibility across a wide spectrum. Partly it's due to the staff that's in place - hardworking, conscientious, caring. And it's all derived from our mission: to provide a welcoming, all-inclusive environment where no-one is ever turned away for inability to pay; where individuals are pushed to be good sports as much as good athletes; where adults can find a nurturing environment as they maintain and build their physical health; where families can come together during events structured just for them. The Annual Campaign provides funding for our financial assistance program, which ensures that we continue to fulfill our promise that no one is turned away due to the inability to pay. In 2015, the Cleveland Y raised $585,218 through the Annual Campaign and distributed over $1.1 million in financial assistance. Please help us bridge the gap so that everyone can have a Y experience.
