ENRICHING LIVES
EXPANDING OPPORTUNITIESkid paint (Custom)

The Cameron Regional YMCA has been working hard to make a positive impact in the lives of our youth and families for the past 12 years and we most certainly could not do it without you! We appreciate your past support of our efforts and would like to ask for your continued support as we strive to serve more youth and families in our service area.

I am sure you are aware of the plans for the YMCA to purchase and renovate the Big Time Movie and Skate Center. With the purchase of this building, we will have a larger Community Recreation Center that will provide multiple opportunities for the Y to reach more families and will become a “destination” for our community.

Currently we spend over $30,000 per year on rent for our current facility, gym space and for our after school programs. Our current program offerings are dependent on the generosity of others who have space available for our usage. These collaborations have been a blessing, but we are limited in what we can offer and how many participants we can serve by the availability of space.

familyOur ultimate goal is to increase the opportunities of positive interaction for youth and to decrease risk factors. Intervention early on in life is key to giving our youth a “hand up” and reducing their chances for needing a “hand out” as adults. If we can invest a few dollars early on and surround them with positive role models, their chances of being self-sufficient and contributing members of society greatly increases.

Our campaign goal is $2,000,000 and we are asking for your help in making this dream come true. We have been awarded a matching grant of $250,000 from the Mabee Foundation and we need your help to reach our goal in order to receive this grant. We are in the final stages of our campaign and to date we have raised just over $1,476,600. If we get 220 additional donors to commit to $250 per year for a five year period-we will reach our goal and receive this grant!!

No gift is too large or too small. All contributions are tax deductible and can be made as a one-time contribution or a pledge spread out over five years. All donors will be recognized on our website and in the new facility. In addition, donors who contribute at least $1000 will have their company logo or family name proudly displayed on their very own plaque in the entrance of the new Community Recreation Center.

Now, more than ever, our community needs you!  We continue to see a rise in childhood obesity, diabetes and juvenile delinquency and the Y is here to help…but we cannot do it without you.  Please consider being a part of our mission to improve the quality of lives in the communities we serve. 

If you would like to help us reach our goal…..please contact Mary Jo at the YMCA or go online to make a donation now!
