At the Y, we believe that all people should have an equal opportunity to thrive. But, we cannot deliver on that promise alone. Thanks to partners and sponsors like the Truist Foundation, our YMCA is able to serve the children who need us most.
A $75,000 grant from the Truist Foundation allows our YMCA to continue to provide academic support to better our communities that are historically excluded.
The YMCA of the Triangle and the Truist Foundation share a goal to level the playing field for all children. Strong partnerships with local school systems have allowed our Y to adapt programming and develop new solutions to enhance education for all children. YMCA standardized academic support programs supplement learning for students who struggle to reach school-system benchmarks.
