The Madison Area YMCA Kicked Off Its 2017 Annual Campaign

(Madison, NJ) – February 17, 2017—The Madison Area YMCA kicked off its 2017 Annual Campaign to Y Board members and the community at the Y’s Family Center. This year’s goal is to raise $385,000 so that all in our community, regardless of income, may be enriched by the Y.

As a cause-driven charitable organization, the Y is dedicated to nurturing the potential of every child and teen, improving our community’s health and well-being and giving back by providing support to our neighbors. The Annual Campaign raises awareness and funds for the Y’s financial assistance program that enables children and families, who work or reside within the Madison Area YMCA’s service area, to participate in Y programs and services regardless of their abilities to pay. Support is provided based upon demonstrated need. All donations remain local. The Annual Campaign also helps the Y broaden its reach into initiating enriching community wellness and health-enhancing programs.

The Madison Area YMCA, part of a worldwide values-driven association, inclusive of all people, provides quality programs that develop a healthy spirit, mind and body and promotes the core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
