Your Y at Work in the Community

The Ashland Family YMCA has a history of community impact, which we’ve achieved by supporting positive change in the lives of individuals and families. Our commitment to well-being, inclusivity, and personal growth brings people together to thrive. Through diverse programming, we nurture youth development, promote health and fitness, and provide a welcoming environment for all.

In 2022, the Y provided more than $400,000 in financial assistance to people in our communities through membership, programs, and outreach. With over 8,000 members, the Y impacts thousands of lives every day. We provided high-quality affordable childcare to working families serving over 230 children. We provided over 1,500 summer camp experiences. Over 675 teen members met with friends at the Y to shoot hoops, lift weights, swim, volunteer, and receive job skills training and employment in a safe and wholesome environment. Over 1,900 youth learned sportsmanship, developed skills and healthy habits, and made friends while never having to be a benchwarmer. Adults and seniors benefited from countless hours and classes of safe exercise opportunities inside, outdoors, virtually, and in the water, building healthier bodies while also forming friendships and combating isolation.

Your Ashland Family Y is a place where community impact happens daily; we’re where individuals of all ages come find the support, resources, and camaraderie they need to flourish.

Nonprofit Statement

Thank you for supporting the Ashland Family YMCA! We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and have been serving this community since 1899. Our federal tax id is 93- 0386976. We accept donations online, by check, or using Visa and MasterCard. We are also happy to take donation payments in quarterly or monthly installments.

Gifts to the support fund make a huge difference in the lives of kids in our community. Every dollar donated goes directly to scholarships that send less fortunate kids to camp, teach them water safety and the joy of swimming, and allow them to learn and grow in the Y’s after-school programs, sports leagues, and gymnastics classes while building self-esteem and developing the core Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

We count on the generosity of our members and donors to support the Y’s Membership and Program Support program, which focuses on children and teens and provides financial assistance, on a sliding scale fee, to those in times of hardship. If you feel that you qualify for assistance this year, contact the Y or find the Membership and Program Support application here. Assistance may also depend on the availability of funds.
