WHEN YOU GIVE, YOU CHANGE LIVES
The Y is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) charity that works side-by-side with our neighbors every day to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. One of the ways we do that is by providing financial assistance to children, adults and families who may be unable to afford a membership or participation in our programs. The Y counts on the generous donations from the public to ensure everyone has the opportunity to participate in our services.
When you give to the Y, you’re doing your part to strengthen our community—and a strong community is good for everyone. Whether you’re helping a child in need attend summer camp or giving someone the assistance they need to make a healthy change in their life, your gift will let us continue to affect positive change in our region.
ways to give
COVID-19 Emergency Fund
The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has placed the Y in unchartered waters and at risk. Your donation will help us maintain our facilities, support our staff, and support our community.
Annual Support Campaign
Together we can ensure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive in a YMCA program.

OTHER WAYS TO GIVE
In addition to making a one-time cash or pledge donation over a period of time, there are other ways you can help.
YOUR DONATION HELPS
Donating your boat to charity is easy and it also provides you with some great benefits. Not only does boat donation help a local child, but you will also be eligible for an itemized charitable tax deduction on your federal tax return. We pick up the boat free of charge and use the proceeds to benefit Greater Naples YMCA. Your boat donation will make a difference in the life of a local child!
MAKING A DONATION IS EASY
When you donate a boat using our boat donation program, you are not only saving yourself time, you are also helping those in need. Contact Carly Gibb, Mission Advancement Director at 239.963.3771 and we'll coordinate a pick up of your boat at a time that works for you, at no cost to you. We take care of all the legal stuff, including providing the necessary paperwork, so you don’t have to. We’ll send you a tax receipt and acknowledgement. Our partners will sell your vehicle and the proceeds will support the mission of the Naples YMCA.
