The President’s Club, established in 1972, honors those men and women who have shown a long-term commitment to the Y. It is the commitment that qualifies individuals as President’s Club members.
Please join the President’s Club to ensure that the Y is here tomorrow as a source of hope, vitality and strength for children and families in our community.
By making either a direct contribution to the Y’s endowment fund or by including the Y in your estate planning, you become part of the President’s Club and a strong tradition of paying it forward. You’ll be joining the circle of caring people who have given us the Y of today which brings together people throughout our community, more than half of them under the age of 25, in support of youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
