We believe that last personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health, and our neighbors – and that begins with having the full support of our members and our community.
Each year, our Y gives more in financial assistance then we receive through charitable donations. This means that each year we face a financial gap. Last year, our fiscal year shortage was over $95,000.
As a nonprofit, we rely on the generosity of individuals and business in Bismarck-Mandan to keep offering the programs and resources that matter to our community. We work hard every day to make sure everyone is welcome at the Y!
YMCA Programs Making an Impact
In 2012, 953 second graders gained life-changing confidence as they learned basic swim mechanics and water safety skills in SPLASH.
Last year, we helped 10 families afford child care
with a scholarship to the Youth Development Center.
Over 164 kids received a scholarship to experience the Y through Summer Day Camp in 2012. It was the opportunity to discover the bold outdoors in a fun and safe environment.
Youth Recreation Pass
Since 1981, our Y has offered a free Youth Recreation Pass to all kids grades K-6 . In 2012, this pass gave 1,062 kids a safe, healthy, and constructive place to belong and at no cost to families.
Last year, over 700 youth and adults received financial assistance for a YMCA membership giving families the opportunity to reconnect and growth together.
