Annual Support Campaign

2018 YMCA Annual Support Campaign: Opening Doors to a Stronger Community.  You can make a donation to the campaign online. Donations are also accepted in-house.


A note from our Director of Marketing Strategy & Development:

I have a confession. I was a member of the Rose E. Schneider Family YMCA for 11 years and I never gave to the Annual Support Campaign. It wasn’t because I didn’t care about the community I lived in and loved. It was because I truly had no clue. I thought the monthly dues for my Family Membership, plus personal training packages, etc., were going towards the Annual Support Campaign. I was wrong.

I finally understood the full impact of the generosity of others after I started working for our Y Association back in January. As part of my training I read hundreds of thank you letters from recipients of Y charitable donations all across Butler County. Some of these letters were so touching that I cried at my desk. And then I got my checkbook and wrote a check to the campaign in a dollar amount that was meaningful to me.

I know there are many of you who “look” just like me. Happily enjoying the Y but perhaps not truly understanding the positive impact we have on distressed youth, families and seniors. Please consider donating today. Every dollar matters…

The Butler County Family YMCA sees firsthand how these wonderful monetary gifts change people’s lives in our local area… Whether we’re helping seniors build their confidence by filling their days with activities that foster new friendships… Or by providing proven, uplifting mentoring programs for at-risk kids who have lost their way and their self-esteem… Or by opening our hearts and our programs to an addict who is struggling to stay clean so they can take care of their family… Giving back to the community is what we do. Your donation to the Butler County Family YMCA changes lives.



Feel free to reach out to me if you’d like to share your story over a cup of coffee or if you have any questions about our Annual Support Campaign. I’d love to hear from you!

Warm regards,

Board Member Testimonial:  “Why I give to the Y”

Butler County’s diversity has been an inspiration to me for the over twenty years I’ve lived here. Our community is comprised of a population that comes from near and far and, certainly has a wide range of economic situations. Undoubtedly, the Lord has blessed my family. And it’s the unflinching mission of the Butler County Family YMCA that motivates me to commit my time, treasure and talents toward the cause of providing support to those in our community who need it most!” -Jim Carr
