This season of Giving and Gratitude, we ask you to consider helping a neighbor in need by supporting the YMCA of Montclair’s financial assistance fund.
So far this school year, our Y has committed over $60,000 in assistance for after-school childcare, and we expect that figure to rise as parents return to in-person work. We have also provided financial assistance to over 200 members seeking to rebuild their health so far this year – financial assistance covers on average 80% of membership costs for those in need. This fund also provides assistance for summer camp and program fees for any family in our community in need. Thanks to our many donors, our Y is also able to serve our community with no-cost chronic disease support programs, senior programs, health and wellness lectures, and family programming.
Did you know that many of our Y staff contribute to the Y’s financial assistance fund? So far this year, Y staff members have donated a collective $19,246 and counting. We know that together, we can make a big impact!
This Giving Tuesday, we have set a goal to raise a matching $19,246 from friends and members of the Y. Every dollar raised will support our scholarship fund, and can be made in honor of a Y staff member or program.
There’s never been a better time to build a better us.
