Our Challenge

All people deserve the opportunity to live a healthy, productive life regardless of their financial situation.

Our Solution

Through the Y Partners campaign, the YMCA of Greater San Antonio serves people who cannot afford the price of a facility membership, a class or a program; by seeking donations to make participation possible for all.

The YMCA has a strong commitment to our mission of “Building healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.” This commitment is vital as our city and surrounding areas experience tremendous growth, which also brings the need to expand programs and services to support our children, families and community. The YMCA meets these challenges through our Y Partners Annual Campaign. Y Partners provides the much needed program scholarships to those who qualify for a helping hand. Your support makes it possible to fulfill our commitment to provide great programs and services for all, today and tomorrow.

How You Can Make A Difference

By supporting the Y Partners Campaign you are encouraging people of all ages to participate in programs and activities that instill the positive values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility, and faith.

Additionally, you are laying the foundation for our future. Your continued support of the campaign helps to ensure that new YMCAs are built, and quality programs are expanded to reach all children and families in San Antonio and surrounding communities.  Our campaign allows us to provide quality services, programs and membership to all regions of our service area.


Cases for our cause!

 The Y Provides an Inclusive Environment For All.

The Y is made up of people from all walks of life working side by side to strengthen our communities regardless of age, ability, cultural/ethnic background, faith, gender, gender identity, ideology, income, national origin, race or sexual orientation. By working together, we ensure that everyone has the opportunity to reach their full potential with dignity. The Open Doors Scholarship program allows the Y to provide life-changing programs to all regardless of an ability to pay. This ensures that everyone has access to programs that allow them to learn, grow and thrive together. This commitment to inclusion is visible in all Y programming, from the Summer Day Camp programming at Morgan’s Wonderland, Adaptive Swim Lessons in Y branches, to cultural celebrations supported by the Y across San Antonio. 

 

The Y Creates Safe Spaces For Our Kids & Is Closing the Achievement Gap.

From infancy to young adulthood, YMCA programs invite youth to be inspired year round through creative play, field trips, college tours, swim lessons, camps, sports and more. Youth are supported through initiatives like the Power Scholars program that addresses specific academic achievement challenges. In other areas, programs such as Youth & Government and Thingamajig offer opportunities for civic engagement and exposure to STEM based learning. These programs are offered in a manner and in formats limited only by the imagination. They are threaded throughout our after school, summer and specialty programs so that learning is suited to individual and diverse needs and abilities. In addition, they provide essential experiences every child deserves…friendships, memories and confidence to grow and succeed.

The Y Improves the Health & Well-Being of Our Community.

Health and Well-Being are all about balance. At the Y, we provide support for individuals and families as they build and maintain healthy habits for spirit, mind and body. Seniors, children and families have endless possibilities to choose a path to wellness specifically catered to their unique needs. Traditional Y fitness classes, personal coaching, and youth wellness programs compliment innovative signature Y programs such as LIVESTRONG® at the Y, Y Diabetes Prevention, C.H.E.F. (Culinary Health & Education for Families), Healthy Weight & Your Child, Summer Food Programs, Blood Pressure Monitoring and Enhanced Fitness classes. This allows the Y to provide evidence based programming to those with specific challenges with the assurance that no one will be turned away die to an inability to pay for services. This is yet another way that the Y provides access to the possibility of achieving a healthier, balanced life for all.
