Become a storyteller and lend your voice to our campaign
and help us help so many right here in our community.

Now, more than ever, the community is relying on the Sewickley Valley YMCA to help address pressing, personal and family needs.

The Y provided an unprecedented level of financial assistance for families and individuals and the need continues to grow for services like affordable child care, health and wellness programming, and much needed enrichment activities for children and teens.

Your support allows us to continue to meet these needs as we have done for more than a century.

Last year, over $335,000 was awarded in financial assistance to over 900 individuals and families who are economically disadvantaged. With a long history of giving back to the community, we continue to support welcoming all, regardless of their ability to pay.

Listed below are the ways your gift helped change lives.

  • Over $120,000 was awarded by the Sewickley Valley YMCA to struggling working families to help offset the cost of child care.
  • Last year, 619 individuals and families relied on the Y to support healthier lives. We want to make sure that all have the opportunity to benefit from the Y. This happens by providing programs that make it fun to stay active, teach healthy nutrition, and provide support and motivation.
  • Over $45,000 was awarded in 2011 so that children could attend summer day camp. During that time children grew in confidence, understood teamwork, and learned not only how to swim, but how to be safe in and around water.


We rely on the generosity of our members and community to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to benefit from our YMCA.

At the Sewickley Valley YMCA, 100% of every gift, regardless of size, makes a difference. As a non profit, your gift is deductible to the extent allowed by law.
