Madison Area YMCA Receives $30,000 Grant from Investors Foundation


(Madison, NJ) January 15, 2019
The Madison Area YMCA was awarded a $30,000 grant by Investors Foundation which provides grant funding for non-profit organizations that enrich the communities served by Investors Bank.

The grant will help the Y provide its low-fee and no-fee Paths to Wellness programs and financial assistance through its Annual Fund. Donations to the Annual Fund ensure that all in the community may participate in membership, programming, childcare and educational opportunities at the Family Center and the F.M. Kirby Children’s Center. 

“We truly appreciate Investors Bank’s support,” said Madison Area YMCA Senior Director of Organization Advancement Amie Herman. “We will put this grant toward improving the health and wellness of our community and providing financial assistance to members of our community who otherwise would not be able to afford Y membership, programming and education.”

Paths to Wellness programs include: LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA for cancer survivors, Community Mental Health Initiative, Diabetes Prevention Program, Healthy Hearts, Delay the Disease for Parkinson’s disease, Enhance Fitness, One Step for Multiple Sclerosis and Project Community Pride, a youth counseling service.
