YMCA Annual Support Campaign Wins Gold

This year, the YMCA of the Foothills embarked on an Olympic-sized challenge, aiming to meet a fundraising goal of $100,000.
Thanks to the incredible support of staff, volunteers, Y members, supportive board members and the entire community, they not only met but surpassed our goal. The 2024 annual Support Campaign raised a staggering $120,409 as of May 17. Every dollar raised is a testament to the collective commitment to the Y’s mission and will support financial aid efforts, ensuring that everyone can access the programs and services, regardless of their financial situation.
“This year, we had some fun with the campaign theme inspired by the Summer Olympics,” said Joanne Pingry, director of mission advancement at YMCA of the Foothills. “Our Y staff came together and implemented creative ways to fundraise from Ball for a Cause, Zumbathon, Paint Night, Pancake Breakfast, etc. Everyone came together for this, and I’m proud that 100% of our staff contributed to this year’s campaign. Such support shows that we’re all genuinely behind our mission, ready to serve.”
Donations from the annual Support Campaign are more than just financial contributions. They are life-saving swim lessons, they are the building blocks of teamwork in youth sports, they are the adventures of summer camps, they are the leadership skills taught in the youth and government programs. Most importantly, they are opportunities made available to the entire community. Donations are what make these experiences possible.
The YMCA of the Foothills is driven by a mission to organize, develop, finance and conduct programs for an association of individuals of all ages. By putting Christian principles into practice, we aim to enrich the quality of lives spiritually, mentally, physically and socially. Continued support is crucial in helping fulfill this mission.
