The Y. So Much More ™

We're more than a place. We're a cause.

From exercise to education, from values to volunteerism, from preschool to prevention, the Y doesn't just strengthen bodies. It strenghtens communities.

Milwaukee faces new challenges that create a greater need than ever for the work we do every day. Fortunately, where some see obstacles, we see opportunities for our members, volunteers and staff to make a difference. With our doors open to all, we work every day to connect people from all backgrounds and support those who need us most.

Every gift matters.
Everyone has a role to play.
Together, we can achieve so much more.

Annual Campaign
Our Annual Campaign ensures that the Y is there for those who need us most and enables every member of our community to have access to diverse programs and activites that meet their needs. By supporting this campaign, you help guarantee that everyone, regardless of their circumstances or ability to pay, can benefit from the Y's values-centered programs. Now more than ever, children and families need the Y's innovative programs and services.

Supporters of the annual campaign demonstrate the power of what we can achieve together. To make a donation to the Annual Campaign click here or, to make a donation by phone call (414) 274-0728.

Giving Societies
The YMCA Giving Societies are special groups of donors who have made an extraordinary commitment to strengthening our community with an annual gift of $1,000 or more to the Y. Gifts may be made toward the Annual Campaign or toward a specific program at any time during the year. For more information on about the Y's giving societies, click here.  

Thank you to our current Giving Society members for their ongoing support. We truly appreciate your dedication to keeping Y programs available to all.

Planned Giving
Today our Y benefits from the volunteers and donors who came before us. It was their foresight and generosity that made many of today's facilities and programs possible.

Many generous individuals wish to make gifts in the future to the YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee. They are giving through their estate plans or making immediate contributions that can generate a life income or special tax benefits. Each year, those individuals who choose to place the Milwaukee Y in their wills or estate plans become members of the Heritage Club. For more information, click here.
