One of the great privileges of leading the Capital Area YMCA is having the opportunity to personally thank so many of the YMCA’s most committed and generous  supporters who are doing the hard work every single day in our community.

From giving generously from the heart to working tirelessly, we strive to recognize local companies and individuals for their humble service to our most vulnerable neighbors.

There is no other nonprofit quite like the YMCA and that’s because we have the presence and partnerships to not just promise, but to deliver, lasting personal and social change.

The Y responds to society’s most pressing needs by developing innovative, community-based solutions to help those in need to reach their full potential and we do this with the help of generous individuals and committed professionals who are hard at work willing to roll up their sleeves and ensure that the YMCA carries out its mission.

We’re proud to applaud and thank all of the honorees and supporters who step up to be the game-changers and the difference-makers for our community. Thank you for standing beside us and for making the Capital Area YMCA a better place.
