The Dryades YMCA is holistically committed to providing the tools necessary for adults, children and families to improve their quality of life.
A $10,000 gift will significantly impact this community by providing a scholarship to train a much needed medical professional and drastically improve an individual’s likelihood to be able to self sustain their family. Reducing poverty makes our community better for everyone.
A gift of $5,000 will transform an individual from a minimum wage worker into a Medical Assistant whose average starting salary is $13.50 per hour.
A gift of $3000 will ensure that 12 young people in our annual Youth and Government program will gain skills and become knowledgeable of our democratic process which will make them better citizens and our community and America stronger. Children engaged in safe, structured educational activities are less likely to be perpetrators or victims of crime.
A gift of $1,500 will provide a safe haven and academic assistance for a child for one school year in our After School Academic Assistance Program for just $125 per month. Communities everywhere are negatively impacted by rising health care costs and reduced productivity caused by the skyrocketing obesity epidemic.
A gift of $1,000, just $83.33 per month, will allow two children to be physically active for six weeks in our Summer Enrichment Camp. Children can develop a lifelong desire to learn when they are exposed to quality, structured learning at an early age.
No gift is too small and all are appreciated and needed. The Dryades YMCA is designated as 501 (c) 3 and all contributions are tax deductible.
