Non-profit organizations like Countryside YMCA rely on the generosity of others to continue serving our community. Here’s how your support helps our mission.
Since 1978, Countryside YMCA has served the Warren County community. We started with one location and expanded to four. During those 40+ years, Countryside YMCA depended on the community to support us, both financially and with gifts of time. As a non-profit organization, our fundraising efforts have been at the core of our ability to remain a viable part of your community. You always respond in kind, and we know you’re always been behind us. In today’s blog, we take a look at how you can support our mission moving forward.
Every year, Countryside YMCA puts together an annual campaign to give you an opportunity to lend financial support to the organization. Donations to this annual campaign include individual donations or corporate partnerships. We use these funds to keep our facilities running and to provide outreach programs to the Warren County community. Countryside is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit social services organization as recognized by the IRS, which means all donations we receive from you are tax deductible on your income tax return.
We also accept IRA contributions, legacy donations to our Heritage Club, and other forms of philanthropy. At Countryside YMCA, you can build a lasting legacy between your family and the community. Our annual campaign is one of the many ways to do that.
The community not only provides financial support for Countryside YMCA, but people also give their time through volunteer work. Over 14,000 hours of volunteer work were completed last year by over 2,100 Countryside volunteers. There are many opportunities for you to donate your time to Countryside YMCA, from being a tour guide, assisting with young children or teenagers, or working in community outreach.
Countryside YMCA hosts several different fundraising events throughout the year that are both fun and practical. Some events for April include a disc golf tournament, Spartan workout tour, and a monthly family challenge. These events offer great fun for the family, give opportunities to build relationships within the community, and put money towards community outreach.
