Support the Y – Strengthen our Community

Annual Support Campaign

At the Maui Family YMCA, one of our most important goals has always been to enrich the lives of children in our community. By introducing children to experiences that will help them grow into responsible, successful adults, we make the community we love a better place to live. One child at a time. One family at a time.

Membership and program fees only support a portion of the Maui Family YMCA’s needs. We need your help to ensure that no one is denied the YMCA experience based on the inability to pay. Through the Annual Support Campaign, your contribution helps us provide program and financial assistance to families and individuals in need. By working together we give our community the opportunity to grow strong in spirit, mind and body.

Scholarships/Financial Assistance

The YMCA offers partial scholarships to those who are unable to afford the full cost of membership or programs. Download our Scholarship Application and turn it in to the Welcome Center to apply.

The Y is a place where everyone is welcome, regardless of race, age, religion or financial standing. Through the Annual Support Campaign, the Y provides financial assistance that keeps programs available to children and families who need them most. The Annual Support Campaign was established to ensure no one would be turned away from YMCA programs and services due only to the inability to pay. The campaign gives members and friends of the Y an opportunity to help others and give back to the community through volunteerism and financial contribution.

IT’S ABOUT PEOPLE

Campaign funds are invested in people. The money raised goes directly to deliver programs and services for children, teens, adults and families. It does not pay YMCA overhead or campaign expenses.

The Annual Support Campaign funds help:

  • Provide lifelong experiences for children, adults and families through Y camping, aquatics, wellness and many other vital programs and services;
  • Develop and enhance nutrition programs throughout the community;
  • Support the Y’s financial assistance program, assuring that no one is turned away from Y programs and services due only to the inability to pay. 22% of Y members receive some form of financial assistance.
