Donation FAQs


How much should I give?

We hope that every Y staff person, volunteer, member, program participant and community member at large will be as generous as possible. But every gift matters.

In the past, Annual Campaign donations have raised from $10.00 to more than $25,000. Gifts of all sizes are needed and welcome. Every dollar makes a difference in our ability to change lives one child or one family at a time.

Do you accept matching gifts?

Yes! Many companies and organizations match the value of charitable gifts made by employees and their spouses, board members, and retirees.

This means that when you make a gift to the YMCA of Saginaw, you can sometimes double or triple its impact by checking with your employer to see if they participate (or are interested in participating) in a matching gift program.

What is the time period of the Y Annual Campaign?

This year the YMCA of Saginaw will run from mid-February through March.

Where do I send my gift?

You can send your gift via regular mail to:

YMCA of Saginaw—Annual Campaign
1915 Fordney St.
Saginaw, Michigan 48601

Can I make a donation in honor or memory of someone else?

The YMCA of Saginaw would feel privileged to have you remember or honor someone through a donation to our organization. We will recognize your gift as you designate it for that special someone.
Select Memorials & Honorariums when asked “Do you want your donation to be affiliated with a specific Campaign?”

What if I can’t give at this time?

There are many ways you can help! You can pledge now and defer payment until later; you can also pay in installments, if that is more convenient for you. All pledge payments must be received by December 31 to be counted in this campaign year.

Who can I contact for more information about serving as an Annual Campaign volunteer?

The Y’s support staff would love to connect you with a Co-Chair or Campaign Captain, who can get you the information you need to get started helping the Y raise funds this year.

Just let us know you want to help!
