DULUTH AREA FAMILY YMCA
Our YMCA is greater than
the sum of our buildings.
Our YMCA is a community hub –a place to enjoy coffee and conversation with neighbors outside of your neighborhood. Our YMCA is a place to learn with others, and a place grow as an individual. Our YMCA is all that you have come to love, and so much that you have yet to experience. Our YMCA brings people together from all walks of life and is dedicated to ensuring that all members of our community have what they need to learn, to grow, and to thrive.
Together, our cause is greater than any four walls. As a part of our Y, you are a part of a national movement to provide opportunity and access for all. Beyond building muscle, we are building the next generation of leaders. Beyond running miles, we are supporting our community in ways that increase its compassion, optimism, and potential. Memberships to the Y create infrastructure to do this work across our community and generous donations ensure that everyone is able to participate in the life-changing programs we offer. We could not do our work without you.
Thank you for helping us to make a difference in 2018. Thank you for continuing to grow with us as we strive to serve more people, in more ways, than ever before.
Thank you, most of all, for strengthening our community through your partnership with the Y.
Here’s to a bright future for all.
