Support the work of the Greater Naples YMCA. Give Where You Live Collier kicks off on Feb. 20, 2019

The Greater Naples YMCA is a proud partner of Give Where You Live Collier, our region’s awesome 24-hour online giving challenge. This exciting event is organized by the Community Foundation of Collier County and is set to launch at noon on February 20. So, mark your calendars now, because we will need your help raise funds during this 24 hours of local giving!

We are asking our members, volunteers, staff and supporters to give whatever they can, because every gift will be multiplied through a matching fund. The more money you help the Greater Naples YMCA raise, the larger percentage of the $500,000 matching fund we will receive to help supports kids, adults, seniors and families with programs that protect, teach, connect, heal, nourish and encourage. So join us for this community-wide event, and together, we’ll show off Collier County’s spirit of giving, raise awareness about the Y and celebrate the collective effort it takes to make this region great. Your support during this event will transform lives!
