Every day at the Y, we strive to create positive, lasting change. From athletics to academic achievement, summer camp to senior activities, the Y doesn’t just strengthen bodies. It strengthens our community.
As we face new challenges, there’s a growing need for the work we do. Where some see obstacles, we see opportunities to make a difference. As a non-profit, we need your support to make it happen. Together, we can do so much more.
When you give to the YMCA of Montclair your generosity reaches and supports children, families and seniors throughout our community.
Every gift matters. Everyone has a role to play. Together, we’re changing lives.
100% of your dollars go to those who need us most. Last year we gave away $400,000 of financial assistance and allocated another $400,000 to our Social Responsibility programs. When you give to the YMCA of Montclair, you make the impossible, possible for so many. Last year, with the help of people like you:
634 families and individuals had access to our facilities to stay active, meet personal goals and make friends.
261 children experienced camp where they become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities.
213 parents had a safe place for their children to do homework, enhance their leadership skills and socialize.
84 children, adults and seniors learned the life-saving skill of swimming.
300+ people benefited from Move Well Today, a free Diabetes Exercise Program (DEP); LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, a free exercise program for survivors of all types of cancer; MS One Step, a free program for those suffering from multiple sclerosis; and Lose to Win, a 10-week program designed to help people reach a healthier weight.
1,200+ children benefit every day from the caring and learning experiences provided by the Y’s 25 School Aged Child Care sites.
2,900 children benefited last year from a Y camp experience.
1,100+ people benefit every day from the Y’s active older adult programs. From physical fitness programs to educational workshops, health screenings and cultural seminars, our programs help hundreds of seniors maintain both physical strength and mental acuity, and allow them to gracefully age in our community.
