Annual Campaign

The YMCA's Annual Campaign makes a positive difference in our community throughout the Y. 100% of every dollar given to the YMCA Annual Campaign is invested in the lives of people who need the Y.

The YMCA of the Triangle is so much more than a gym. For more than 150 years, our Y has been the bedrock of the community by growing, adapting and innovating to meet critical needs.

Through educational support programs, health and well-being initiatives, and the carefree fun of YMCA Summer Day Camp, the Y meets urgent community needs. But we can't do it alone. Your donations to the Annual Campaign, make it possible for us to support children, teens and adults - regardless of their ability to pay.
