WHY IT MATTERS
Every day, our community faces challenges that create a greater need for the work we do. So much more than a gym and a great place to swim, the Y develops and provides vital programs and services for all people in Knoxville and the surrounding communities. When you donate to your Y, you’re donating for a better us.
Our Annual Campaign is underway. Will you help?
From safe spaces to academic achievement to family well-being and more, when you donate to the Y, you’re giving those in need the opportunity to thrive.
Your generous support keeps the Y available for those who need us most.
At the Y, we believe that ALL people, especially children, deserve an equal chance to reach their full potential. Together, Y volunteers, donors, members, and partners are tackling pressing issues by offering access and opportunities to programs and services that meet local needs.
Today, one in four children, teens and families need financial assistance to be part of the Y. Membership dues do not include funding for scholarships. We rely on generous support from donors like you to make it possible for the Y to give everyone the opportunity to learn, lead and grow.
Everything the Y does is in service of making us – as individuals and a community – better.
Thank you for your support.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and your gift is tax-deductible. And we make sure 100% of your contribution stays in our community, right here in your own neighborhood.
