Giving back and providing support to our neighbors…
We know that when we work as one, we move people and communities forward. That’s why we are committed to providing support to our neighbors and opportunities for kids, adults and families to give, join in or advocate in the name of stronger communities.
The generosity of others is at the core of our existence. It is only through the support of our thousands of volunteers and public and private donors that we are able to give back to the communities we serve.
We are a powerful ally and advocate for our communities. Our experience and strong relationships in neighborhoods across the Schaumburg area mean that we are able to organize grassroots efforts and influence public policy around a range of social issues, including child welfare, education and public health.
How can you support your community? The Y’s commitment to living its charitable mission each and every day keeps us strong and focused. The Y works to nurture the potential of children and teens, improve the nation’s health and well-being, and give back and support our neighbors. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together. At the Y, strengthening community is our cause.
No child, family or adult is turned away here at the Y. We recognize that for communities to succeed, everyone must be given the opportunity to be healthy, confident, connected and secure. With your support, the Y’s scholarship program ensures that we are there for those in our community who need us most. Your support ensures that everyone, regardless of circumstances or inability to pay can benefit from the Y. Contributions to the “Y For All Program” supports important programs such as, membership, teens, before & after schoolchild care, preschool, youth sports, day camp, and aquatics. No gift is too small, and all donors can designate where their gift is used to support a specific program at the Y.
