Annual Campaign

We’re more than a gym. We’re here for all, every day, with programs that encourage healthy families, connect people to supportive resources, give kids safe places, confidence and a voice in our community, and inspire social good.

Your membership due operate the facility, your gift changes lives. 

 

 

Strong Past, Bright Future

 

REFLECTING ON OUR PAST...


Since our local governemt charted the YMCA on March 24th, 1992, our facility, previously West-Sparta Elementary School and Sparta Recretaional Center, has been home to a thriving wellness center, evolving group exercise classes, an expanding community, and more. Today, after numerous renovations and expansions, our YMCA supports over 650 members and sees over 2,500 member visits per month.

 

 

...INVESTING IN OUR FUTURE
 

The YMCA states that no one should be turned away because of inability to pay. We are going to make sure that promise holds true. In January 2019, our Y implimented an Open Doors program, a scholorship for financial aid for low income families.

 

Other programs we hope to enstate in 2019 with your help:

- Afterschool Program

- Discount for youth in the community to access the pool once per week

- Swim Lessons outreach into the community

- Youth Sports: Reinstatment of T-Ball

- Family & Child programs: Parents Night Out, Mommy & Me, etc.

- Summer Day Camp

- Enrichment programs

 

We are the smallest YMCA in the country. It takes people like you and your generosity to help ensure our facilities are safe and equipped to meet the needs of our members and our community. 

 

Be a part of something great!

Frequently Asked Questions

How will my gift be used?

Donations to the Annual Support Campaign are used to fund the Y’s financial assistance programs for those who cannot afford to pay the full price for Y programs and services.  In addition, the Annual Support Campaign provides seed money for the establishment of new programs and services or the expansion of programs and services to new communities or neighborhoods.
