Now, more than ever we need YOUR help.


Nonprofits cannot continue to wait for Congress to act.
Across the country, YMCAs are working diligently to meet the needs of their communities. However, need continues to grow as the coronavirus crisis continues, and nonprofits like the Y need immediate federal support to keep their doors open if they are to meet the new and growing needs of those they serve.  

Take action today and urge your U.S. Representative to push for bipartisan #Relief4Charities priorities—whether as standalone bills, as part of a larger package, or included in the coming Continuing Resolution to fund the government.
