2021 Annual Giving Campaign

At the Y, we believe we have something special—sense of community—and that everyone should have access to it, along with the programs and services that help us learn, grow and thrive. With the help of donors and volunteers, we were proud to share our Y with 970 children, seniors and families last year who otherwise might not have become part of our Y family. Fred enjoys his membership here at the Y. He has embarked on a healthier lifestyle. Due to his health issues Fred benefits most from his time in the pool. Fred started off at the Y afraid of water and with the support of staff and participation in adult aquatics lessons he built the confidence and ability to utilize both the shallow and deep end of the pool independently to continue working on his health goals. “I am so grateful the Y was able to provide childcare during the pandemic, even though the facility had to close. If it wasn’t for the Y I would not have been able to keep my job or afford to send my child to care. I always knew he was safe and well cared for at the Y and didn’t have to worry while I was at work.” From safe spaces to academic achievement to family well-being and more, when you donate to the Y, you’re giving those in need the opportunity to thrive. BE THE ONE to support our neighbors and give hope for the future for those who need it the most. Every dollar gifted to the Sanford-Springvale YMCA has a lasting impact on the people of Sanford and the surrounding communities.
