Annual Campaign



When you donate to the Darien YMCA you make our community better and build strength in those who live here. At the Y, our programs encourage healthy families, connect people to supportive resources, give kids a safe place, build confidence, give everyone a voice in our community, and inspire social good. As the nation's leading non-profit for youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, a gift to the Y's Annual Campaign will help make a meaningful, enduring impact right in your own neighborhood.

The Annual Campaign provides financial assistance for memberships, pre-school, summer camp, and programs to local children and families in need. By supporting the Y, you help guarantee that everyone - regardless of their circumstances or ability to pay - can belong to the Y, participate in healthy programs and improve their lives.

The Y is a place of possibility and promise for all, with a focus on strengthening community. Every day the Y supports kids, adults, seniors, and families with programs that protect, teach, connect, heal, nourish, and encourage. Everything we do helps empower our community and all who call this home.
