BUILDING A BRIGHTER FUTURE

ANNUAL SUPPORT CAMPAIGN


After 53 years of serving Collier County, the Y understands what our community needs to be its best. Working with generous donors like you, the Y provides everyone the opportunity to be healthy and thrive, to connect with others, and contribute to a better community. Everything the Y does is in service of making us – as individuals and a community – better.

The Annual Support Campaign raises the charitable funds needed to ensure that everyone in Collier County has access to vital community programs and resources that support youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Every day, the Y plays a vital role in supporting various community needs, including school readiness, water safety & drowning prevention and combating chronic diseases.


TOGETHER, WE CAN BUILD BRIGHTER FUTURES

This year, the Greater Naples YMCA hopes to raise $300,000 dollars for its Annual Support Campaign. Funds raised will be used to support programs like group fitness classes, Silver Sneakers and other healthcare programs, Pickleball, Tennis and provide financial assistance for youth, adults and families to ease the cost of camps, childcare, sports and membership.
