Annual Campaign


Strengthening our Community Annual Campaign 2020

The Darien YMCA is charting a new path, re-imagining how we strengthen community, together. Everyone has a role to play and you are invited to rebuild with us.

Our community has changed. What remains constant is our promise to serving the community through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. We deliver this promise through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.

Together we must imagine what our future will be as a community. The way we will care for one another has been impacted by the pandemic. Standing together, we can chart a stronger path forward for ourselves, our neighbors and our community.

When you give to the Darien YMCA's Annual Campaign, you create opportunities for us all to rebuild. With your help, our Y can focus on what we do best and where we’re needed most - caring for our community.
