Why Give to the Y

Everyone knows the Y as a place to camp, swim, or exercise. Yet, the Y is so much more. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we provide crucial programs and services to the community every single day

Your donation supports the critical work the Y does in our community, especially throughout the COVID crisis, shutdowns, food distribution, and most recently the storm damage. Our programs ensure all youth, adults, and families can participate in Y membership and programs, regardless of their ability to pay.

Thank you for supporting the Brainerd Family YMCA’s cause

When you give to the Y, you are funding life-changing programs that help hundreds of children, adults, and families in the Lakes Area learn, grow, and thrive. The Y is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and registered with the IRS Tax ID #41-0693938.

You can donate online below or you can drop of your donation with our Member Services team at the front desk.
