Annual Campaign

Calling all Superheroes. Join Forces with the YMCA

At the Darien Y, anyone can be a superhero. But, every superhero needs a few trusted allies.

That’s where YOU come in.

When you donate, you join forces with the Darien Y and a powerful national movement committed to creating a future in which all people achieve health, gain confidence and make connections at every stage of life. Your donation helps someone in need find support, purpose, and superpowers to better their lives.

Our goal is to raise $250,000 so that more youth, families, seniors, and individuals with diverse abilities can grow, connect, and thrive at the Y. And with your help, we can ensure that no one is ever turned away from the Y due to an inability to pay.
