2019 YMCA Annual Support Campaign: Because Everyone Belongs. You can make a donation to the campaign online. Donations are also accepted in-house.
A note from our Director of Marketing Strategy & Development:
Happy 2019! And it is indeed a great start to the year. I have wonderful news to share… We exceeded our 2018 Annual Support Campaign goal by raising almost $351,000 with over 800 donations! We accomplished this together, side-by-side, united by one common goal: Strengthening our Community!
As I type this I am feeling very humbled by the generosity of our members and the local businesses that support us and love the good work we do for the community. We are blessed.
On January 29th I will be celebrating my one year anniversary working for the Y. Wow, right? As I mentioned in my first intro letter to you back then, “I’ve found my new home.” That thought crosses my mind on a daily basis and I’m more excited and proud to work for this organization than ever!
Walking through the halls of the Y, I notice so many little things and it makes me smile:
- The familiar faces of our members who are all so unique and special, each with their own set of triumphs and challenges. Keep being awesome!
- Our sweet, wonderful staff working their hardest to serve our Y and the local community they love so much. Thank you!
- On any given day I see happiness, eagerness, anticipation, exhilaration, sometimes anxiety over the unknown, and yes, sometimes I also see loneliness, depression and despair. I hope the Y continues to lift each of you up so you can live life to the fullest!
In 2019, our Annual Support Campaign will celebrate “all”
— BECAUSE EVERYONE BELONGS —
As we make our way through this year, let’s remember that we’re all in this together.
I’d love to meet you this year! Please reach out to me and let’s share stories.
Your donation to our YMCA changes lives. Right here in Butler County.
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!

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

Gifts in Honor of or in Memory of…
Gifts given in honor of someone or in memory of a loved one provide financial support to the Butler County Family YMCA, but they also show how much you care. When you give a gift such as this, simply designate who you are honoring or memorializing and their contact information or next of kin contact information. The YMCA will then send them a letter informing them about your generosity and thoughtfulness.

By joining the Ambassador’s Club, you make a powerful statement about the value of the YMCA in people’s lives and you inspire others to give more generously themselves.
