This is your Y. This is your community.

Make an Impact. You help provide a strong, safe, and healthy community for all.  


2022 Annual Campaign

Annual Campaign

We continue to focus on programs that support youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. Through our annual campaign efforts, we can focus on meeting the needs of our community.

No one is turned away due to inability to pay. 

Each year, we provide scholarships to those in need. This allows more kids the opportunity to attend camp, receive swimming education and participate in programs for youth leaders to build character and confidence. Scholarships also provide opportunities for families in need to become YMCA members.

Financial scholarship awards range from 20%-75% off regular fees.


Here's how your gift will help strengthen our community:

$5,000 / year     will support 50 youth in developing their leadership skills through Youth in Government and other youth leadership programs at the YMCA

$2,500 / year     will provide 40 kids with access to free Safety Around Water classes

$1,000 / year     will provide two families access to a year-long YMCA membership to become healthier and happier in a safe and welcoming place

$500 / year        will provide 4 children the opportunity to grow, learn and thrive at YMCA camp

$250 / year        will provide 10 middle school students the opportunity to participate in YMCA Middle School Activity Nights

$100 / year        will support 6 adults looking to reclaim their health with a membership scholarship



Community Sponsorship

The Northfield Area Family YMCA offers your business a prime opportunity to be seen as a leader in the community and build your brand loyalty while driving the mission and work of the YMCA. By becoming a Community Partner, you will help ensure that our community has access to the Y through memberships, swimming lessons, water safety skills, group exercise, afterschool programs, summer day camp and senior wellness programs, regardless of ability to pay.

Each year the Y provides over $100,000 direct subsidies to more than 400 people - our charitable work extends even further through partnerships and mission-driven programs.
