HISTORY OF BOARD SERVICE

With a strong belief in the Young Men’s Christian Association movement, Ms. Gladys Donohue and Mr. Joseph Ruffing, Jr. filed the first documents to create the Collier County YMCA in 1967. The first board president, Mr. David K. Johnson was named in 1969. From humble beginnings, made by an association who saw the hopefulness of a plot of land on the corner of Airport Road and Pine Ridge Road, we are now situated at what is considered the busiest intersection in Collier County.

Through nearly a 50-year history of serving Collier County, the Greater Naples YMCA has grown, always striving to better serve our community. Today, the Naples YMCA stands stronger than ever, piloting many regional and national programs with the help of a plethora of nonprofit associations that have joined our movement.
