YMCA of Southeastern North Carolina

Annual Campaign

You can find a gym, swimming pool or treadmill in many different places. But it is our cause that makes the Y so special. The real measure of who we are is reflected in the lives we impact.
The Y is one of the largest philanthropic organizations in the world committed to strengthening communities– because we are the community. We are an inclusive non-profit organization dedicated to helping adults, children and families live healthier, more productive lives in spirit, mind and body. At the Y, people from all backgrounds build connections through fitness, sports and shared interests.
We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our community. Together with you, your family and your neighbors, our movement strengthens the community through promoting three things:
Our mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. The Y is an essential part of our community and it belongs to everyone regardless of age, income or background. Which is why we offer scholarships, funded by community support and donations to our Annual Campaign. Through our Annual Campaign, we can offer more for children, families and adults within our community.  Join us as we work together to make a positive difference.

About our Annual Giving Campaign

The Y’s Annual Campaign raises funds to provide scholarships for those who need the Y most. These scholarships give kids, families and adults the opportunity to pay program and membership fees that align to their household income so that everyone has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive at the Y. 100% of every dollar donated to the Annual Campaign directly support adults, children and families in need of our programs and services.

Our Impact in the Community

Last year, our Y raised over $170,000 through our Annual Giving Campaign, which helped us to provide more than $300,000 in scholarships which supported thousands of kids, families and individuals in our community.
