People need certain things to thrive
We all need to eat well, stay safe, be active, spend time together, learn and grow. Sadly, in an increasingly technological and polarized world, it’s not always easy to get what we need.
Playing outside has become a rarity. Face time happens through a phone. And instead of seeing the income gap shrink, it seems all we do is watch it grow.
But where society falls short, the Y steps in. Because, after nearly 150 years of serving Saginaw, the Y knows what we need to be our best selves. The Y gives us a place to play, to learn, to be healthy, to eat well and give back. It gives parents child care, young adults job training and children a safe place to go.
Everything the Y does makes us better
It’s true that we charge fees at the Y for memberships, and some programs. As a cause-driven nonprofit, our fees are usually modest and represent a direct investment in our staff, facility and community. But not everyone in Saginaw can afford the Y’s services, which help to strengthen children, adults, and families in our community.
Because of the philanthropic support of generous donors from the community, we can provide support in the focus areas you know us for while actively exploring new and innovative ways to expand our reach and assist those who need help in improving their health and well-being.
Please consider helping to create a community that addresses childhood obesity, chronic disease, and achievement gaps in children and adults by supporting residents in their pursuit of physical, intellectual and spiritual strength.Give Now Online
