YMCA seeks donors to help reach new heights in fundraising efforts

Thursday, July 4, 2024

Putnam County YMCA recently announced that the building project is on schedule and set to open in early 2025. The progress of this project is representative of a major milestone in the YMCA mission to foster youth development, healthy living and social responsibility within the community.

The YMCA has raised more than $1.2 million with the most recent commitment from Cash Concrete totaling $50,000. In reaching this crucial juncture, YMCA officials are calling on the generosity and support of the community to help meet their remaining fundraising goals.

Funding needs include $100,000 to meet the operational goal and $450,000 to meet the endowment goal. Achieving these targets will ensure the YMCA remains a sustainable and vital resource for generations to come.

“We are incredibly grateful for the community’s support thus far,” said Nicole Fry, executive branch director of the YMCA. “We are so close to achieving our fundraising goals and completing this incredible project. With your help, we can create a legacy for our community. Please join us in making the final push to bring our vision to life.”
