Why Fundraise for the Y?

When this crisis ends, there will be a great desire for people to get outside, socialize, and be active. 

We offer programs with a focus on Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility such as afterschool, preschool, youth sports, swimming lessons, day and resident camps, programs for seniors, and programs for teens.

Now more than ever, parents will have a greater need for financial assistance in order to afford these life-changing programs. 


The YMCA of Greater Hartford needs your help in ensuring that we can remain strong.

How you can help?


Create a personalized online fundraising page to take your fundraising efforts for your branch of the YMCA of Greater Hartford to the next level and make it easier to share with your network of friends.

Raise money by creating your own personal donation webpage and having the donations go directly to your branch of the YMCA of Greater Hartford. Engage your friends, family, co-workers and neighbors by sharing your fundraising efforts on social media or email. All the donations you collect go directly to your branch of the GHYMCA and donors receive a tax donation.​

Your personalized online campaign page is an easy and effective way to raise funds to support your favorite Y programs and to involve your network in a cause you believe in.

You can reach out to people you know and ask them to support the Y through the creation of your fundraising webpage, personalized with your Y story and photos.

Then, you can send a message to your network that includes a link to a fundraising page and ask for donations.

You are able to see donations that are made to your page, post updates to your supporters, and even create a team and recruit additional team members to join you in support of the Y.


The YMCA of Greater Hartford is a private not-for-profit, human service organization that operates 10 branches and two resident camps serving 52 communities in Hartford, Litchfield, Tolland and Windham counties.

The Y is open to all and committed to helping people develop their fullest potential in spirit, mind and body.  This commitment is reinforced by our belief in living out universal values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.  Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, can learn, grow and thrive.

We offer programs with a focus on Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility such as afterschool, preschool, youth sports, swimming lessons, day and resident camps, programs for seniors, programs for teens, and so much more.

100% of donations raised through our campaign stays in our community. When you donate to a specific YMCA branch within the YMCA of Greater Hartford, those funds will stay with that branch.
