TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
The Greater Naples YMCA is so much more than a gym. We are a nonprofit, charitable organization that has served this community for 53 years with programs focused on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
Together, we build Strong Kids, Strong Families and Strong Communities. The Y empowers everyone, no matter who they are or where they’re from, by ensuring access to resources, relationships and opportunities for all to learn, grow and thrive. By bringing together people from different backgrounds, perspectives and generations, the Y’s goal is to improve overall health and well-being, ignite youth empowerment and demonstrate the importance of connections in our community.
Every day, the Y plays a vital role in supporting various community needs, including school readiness, water safety & drowning prevention and combating chronic diseases. With the support of our donors and community, the Y does not turn anyone away due to their inability to pay, making sure ALL people have the opportunity to thrive.

QUESTION: Why is the Annual Support Campaign necessary?
RESPONSE: We conduct the Annual Support Campaign to make sure everyone in Collier County has a chance to belong and participate at the YMCA, regardless of circumstances and ability to pay.
QUESTION: What is the Campaign Goal?
RESPONSE: This year, the Greater Naples YMCA hopes to raise $300,000 dollars for its Annual Support Campaign. Funds raised will be used to support programs like group fitness classes, Silver Sneakers and other healthcare programs, Pickleball, Tennis and provide financial assistance for youth, adults and families to ease the cost of camps, childcare, sports and membership.
QUESTION: Doesn’t the Y get financial support from dues, program fees, grants and other funding sources?
RESPONSE: Yes, the YMCA certainly gets a lot of community support from multiple sources, but it is simply not enough to cover the full cost of operating the facilities and delivering all of the programs. It’s also critical that the Y keeps its membership dues and program fees as affordable as possible. Membership dues only cover the cost of maintaining and operating YMCA facilities and programs. Contributions from the Y Annual Support Campaign support programs like group fitness classes, Silver Sneakers and other healthcare programs, Pickleball, Tennis and provide financial assistance for youth, adults and families to ease the cost of camps, childcare, sports and membership.
QUESTION: Does all of the money raised in the Y Annual Support Campaign stay here?
RESPONSE: Yes, 100% of the contributions stay right here, serving people throughout Collier County.
QUESTION: Why should I give to the Y’s Annual Support Campaign, I’m not a member?
RESPONSE: You benefit by having a strong YMCA in the community that provides meaningful services and opportunities to those who need our help the most. The YMCA makes our entire community a better place to live and work.
