After one year of Northfield Y operations, our new Community Center is everything we hoped for and more! In one year, we exceeded our membership goals. We have over 4800 members. Within the membership, 254 families and a total of 788 people received financial support so that no one is turned away. Visit the Y on any given weekday evening and witness the rich diversity in membership.
Our work to secure the long-term future of the Y is not finished. When the doors opened last September, together we had raised over $8.4M towards a goal of $9.3M. With this shortfall, annual debt payments will total $100,000, which limits our ability to focus solely on mission. Completing our goal and retiring this debt will ensure that we are able to offer high impact programs and respond to community needs for generations to come.
Would you help the Y close this campaign? We know that when we work as one, we can move forward. Together we can build a healthier, more active and engaged community. Gifts could happen in several different ways. Consider making a pledge and paying that pledge over time. Perhaps you may be able to give a larger one-time amount.
Donating is easy and all Capital Campaign donors will be added to our Permanent Donor Wall in the Y’s Gathering room (our temporary donor wall is now up in the Y Gathering room)
- Press the “Give” button (upper red side bar) or
- Download the Pledge card and mail it to Northfield Area Family YMCA, 1501 Honeylocust Drive, Northfield MN 55057.
