Frequently Asked Questions

Why does the YMCA need fundraisers, don't you get money from the United Way?

Yes,we are very proud to be a United Way recipient. However, the money we receive from the United Way services very specific YMCA programs. Team Members are raising money for YMCA scholarships that can be used for any YMCA program.


Why would I want to be involved?

Becoming a YMCA Champion (Team Member) will help the San Antonio community in more ways than you can imagine. It is a great volunteer opportunity for you to help the YMCA raise money for scholarships. These scholarships help children, adults, and families that are unable to pay full fees, but want to participate in YMCA programs. The YMCA never turns anyone away due to an inability to pay.

What does a Team Member have to do?

We ask all Team Members to become YMCA Champions. Champions make a personal donation and share their Y Story with their friends, family, and colleagues. In addition, we ask Champions to invite all others to invest in the YMCA by making a donation to the Y Partners Campaign.

How much time will this take?

Being a part of a team will take as much or as little time as you want to invest. Our goal is that every Team Member will get at least 10 donations in addition to their personal gift.

Do I have to raise a lot of money?

We ask that you make a personal donation and that you get 10 additional donations. The minimum amount for each donation is $10.

Will someone teach me what to do?

Yes, we have a staff and volunteers that will work with all our Champions. Staff and volunteers will mentor Champions to ensure your success.

What if I don't want to be a Team Member, but I want to make a donation?

Then you can go to the "Donate Now" tab and follow the directions.
