For a Better Us

As a charitable, non-profit organization, the West Suburban YMCA relies on the generosity of our members, volunteers and donors to help us fulfill our promise to strengthen the community. We are committed to our neighbors and to providing a place of security, support and health for all. 



Make An Impact


Charitable gifts ensure that the Y can stay open to all. In the past year, your donations have enabled:

Financial Aid


  • 40% of our childcare students to grow, learn, and thrive in Preschool and Out-of-School Time programs
  • 54 youth athletes to build confidence and leadership skills on the courts and fields
  • 310 households to become part of the Y's nurturing community
  • 159 children to experience the magic of summer camp

Livestrong at the YMCA...

A 12-week health & wellness program for cancer survivors, offered free of charge. In 2023 over 30 participants have strengthened body, mind, and spirit as part of Livestrong at the YMCA.

Affordable Housing...

Newton Corner Place gives vulnerable residents a safe place to land. As the only single resident occupancy developments in the city, we fill a critical housing gap.

A Second Home for All...

As an anchor institution serving Newton and surrounding communities, the Y acts quickly to respond to pressing needs. Through historic expansion over the past year, 1-in-4 local children have benefited from the Y's services over the past year.

You Can Make a Difference.

$2,500 Helps a child thrive in the Y’s Preschool Center for Youth Development. All children deserve to learn, play, and grow in one of our high-quality classrooms, and the Y makes sure that financial circumstances are never an obstacle. 

$1,000 Enables a cancer survivor to grow in strength of body, mind, and spirit. LiveStrong at the YMCA – our specially designed 12-week program- can be offered at no cost to participants because of the generosity of our community. 

$500 Ensures that a child can experience the magic of summer camp. At camp, kids develop as leaders, build lasting friendships, and have good, old-fashioned fun. No child should miss out because of their family’s financial circumstances.  

$250 Helps the Y become a home. Our programming, staffing, and support enables residents of Newton Corner Place to find a stable and safe place to land during challenging times. 

$100 Provides learners with critical water safety skills that reduce the risk of drowning. 

Gifts of all Sizes Make our entire community stronger by letting us say “yes” to anyone who will benefit from our services but can’t afford to participate without some extra help.
