(Madison, NJ) May 8, 2015- Through the dedication and enthusiasm of more than 60 volunteer campaigners and more than 1,101 gifts, the Madison Area YMCA’s $350,000 Annual Campaign goal for 2015 was met! The Y and its volunteer campaigners celebrated their accomplishment at the Wyndham Hamilton Park Hotel & Conference Center in Florham Park.
The Madison Area YMCA’s Annual Campaign raises awareness and funds for the Y’s financial assistance program that enables the participation of hundreds of children and families in Y membership, programs, wellness initiatives, services and camps at our Family Center and childcare, early childhood education and summer camps at our F.M. Kirby Children’s Center.
The Campaign is one of the ways that allows the Y to provide assistance to anyone who resides or works in Madison, Chatham and Florham Park. Support is provided based on demonstrated need, with the goal that no one be turned away from membership regardless of income or background.
The Annual Campaign also helps the Y broaden its reach into initiating enriching community wellness and health-enhancing programs such as its cancer survivors’ program LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, the Community Mental Health Initiative, the Diabetes Prevention Program and Walk with Ease, an arthritis program.
A nonprofit community organization, the Madison Area YMCA kicks off its Annual Campaign by raising funds through a staff appeal. The campaign then rolls out to Y Board members, Y members and the community led by a group of dedicated volunteer campaigners.
