As a non-profit organization, the Y depends on generous support from individuals and businesses throughout the community to achieve its mission. Thanks to this generosity, the Y provides membership assistance and program scholarships to more than 20 percent of its members.
Additionally, we strive to support other organizations committed to similar goals by making our resources or facilities available when possible. The Y receives a large number of requests each year and is unable to grant all requests. We have established the following policies and procedures to guide the process.
The Y normally donates only to other 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations or organizations working to raise funds for a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The Y does not donate to individuals or groups raising money for individuals. Priority is generally given to other non-profit organizations with a focus on community health and wellbeing. Additionally, a connection to the Y as a member, donor or volunteer, or a relationship with a staff member is given priority.
TYPES OF DONATIONS
The Y is unable to make cash contributions. The Y will contribute limited memberships and services, such as one-month memberships, program registrations, gift certificates, bounce house rental, etc. Additionally, the Y may donate time as a vendor or present at a workshop.
All donations made by the Y are intended for the sole benefit of the non-profit organization for which the donation was made. The resale or re-purposing of any donation by the organization or the winner of such a donation is strictly prohibited without the prior approval of the Y and will nullify the donation.
MAKING A REQUEST
A request form should be completed and submitted at least 4 weeks prior to the event or fundraiser. Request for facility use should be submitted as early as possible. Incomplete forms may not be considered. See the form below to get started.
We will review requests monthly and determine what we can support. We will respond to all requests with a determination.
