Show Your Support

Our mission rests on the three pillars that make our community stronger:  

Nurturing the potential of every child and teen

Improving health and overall well-being

Giving back and providing support to our neighbors

When you donate to the YMCA of Lincoln, you're helping your community. Because at the Y, strengthening community is our cause. We believe that positive, lasting personal change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. 

Your gift fuels community projects and improves the lives of kids and families across the areas we serve. Your financial help makes it possible. 

Ways to Show Your Support

  • Throughout the year, our YMCA branches take part in community initiatives such as the Holiday Giving Tree, camp renovations, and drives for food and basic needs. 

  • A Memorial Gift is a meaningful way to keep your loved one's memory and legacy alive. Celebrate the life of those cherished by making a gift in their honor that will help kids and families throughout the community they called home.

  • The Planned Giving/Heritage Club is made up of individuals who have felt and seen the impact of the YMCA in their lives and want to continue to support the mission well beyond their lifetime.

  • Our annual sustaining campaign, YMCA Annual Campaign-Strong Kids, is a collaboration of donors, volunteers and staff to provide kids the support they need to learn, grow and thrive. From advocacy to after school programs and camping, disease prevention to athletics, soccer to dance classes, everything we do helps strengthen our neighborhoods and the youth who live there.
