Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in the New York State YMCA Foundation, Inc. At the Y, everything we do is for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. When you support the New York State YMCA Foundation you are supporting the 40 Ys and 130 branches across New York State.


Every year, YMCAs across New York State serve over 1 million children and youth. Programs such as Youth and Government empower teens to make a difference in their communities. In addition to our youth development programs, Ys also advance physical activity and healthy lifestyles for people of all ages. None of this work would be possible without the support of friends like you. Please take a moment to further explore our website and learn more about our mission, or read our 2016 Case for Giving.

Thank you again for your interest in New York State YMCA Foundation, Inc. and helping us to promote youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
