Your gift provides access and opportunity.
Each year, we rely on donations to provide support and opportunities that empower people and communities to learn, grow and thrive. With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y nurtures the potential of every child and teen, improves the nation's health and well-being, and provides opportunities to give back and support neighbors.
We work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, can access our programs and services.
Why Giving to the Y Matters
At the YMCA of the Chesapeake, we’re a community where all people are encouraged to develop their fullest potential in spirit, mind and body. With a focus on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, the Y inspires people of all ages to be active and healthy, educated and engaged, building a stronger community for us all.
