Everything the Y does is in service of building a better us. From athletics, to education, to health services, to safe spaces, the Y fills the gaps where society falls short. It gives us a place to play, to learn, to be healthy, to eat well and give back. Its gives parents child care and, young adults job training and children a safe place to go. Because we believe every person and every community deserves the change to thrive.

YMCA programs and services are made available to all people in the communities it serves. Therefore, no one is turned away because of their inability to pay. Financial assistance is available for both membership and program services. The YMCA also subsidizes worthwhile youth programs that meet community needs such as youth sports, youth swim lessons and school age child care.

Your financial gift will help to strengthen the Quincy area by helping individuals and families through programs and services that support youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Funds to pay for worthwhile YMCA programs and services come from several sources, including donations from the community. There are several ways for individuals or businesses to help support the work of the YMCA.

Annual Campaign

The Y.™ For a better us.™

In the spring of each year, numerous YMCA volunteers solicit donations from individuals and businesses in the local area. These contributions allow the YMCA to provide financial assistance for kids and families and subsidize youth development programs.

Monetary donations for the Annual Campaign are not limited to the campaign period in the spring of the year, but may be made at any time. If you are approached by a volunteer during the campaign period, please give generously.

In-Kind Gifts

Like many other non-profits, the Quincy Family YMCA has operational and facility needs that are outside the scope of the normal budgetary abilities. There are items of every price range on our Wish List. It could be anything from new computer equipment or programs, building supplies, a new treadmill, toys for our youth programs, replacement fitness balls, or field goalposts. For anyone interested in making a physical donation of a needed item, please contact the Development Director.


Honoring a loved one through a donation to the Quincy Family YMCA is another option. The YMCA has touched the lives of so many people in the community and it hard to find anyone that doesn’t have their own “YMCA story”. Why not keep those memories alive through a lasting memorial to the YMCA? Whether monetary or with a physical donation of a needed item, a memorial to the YMCA is a lasting way to honor a member of the “Y” family, as well as a member of your own.

The Thanksgiving Endowment Fund

For those looking to make more long term or lasting donations, the Thanksgiving Endowment Fund may be the right method. Earnings from the Thanksgiving Fund benefit financially underprivileged kids and families so they can participate in YMCA programs such as child care, youth sports, summer day camp and other youth activities.

Donations to the Thanksgiving Fund may be made in a variety of ways, including cash, stock and bonds, real estate, life insurance benefits, or Gifts Of Grain. Many of these methods allow the donor to qualify for maximum allowable income tax deductions or may be considered as a charitable contribution, thereby avoiding capital gains taxes on the appreciation.

The Gift of Time

Sometimes the hardest thing to give is one’s time. The Quincy Family YMCA has many opportunities for volunteerism. We are always looking for coaches, campaigners, office staff and committee members. For more information, look at our Volunteer section.
