Our Mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. As the leading nonprofit for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y works side-by-side with our neighbors every day to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. To do our important work, the Y relies on support from members, donors, volunteers and community leaders. When you are involved with the Y, you help bring about lasting personal and social change. Whether you want to nurture the potential of children and teens, improve your or your family’s health and well-being or give back and support your neighbors, your involvement with the Y will positively impact those in your community.
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 Abilene and the surrounding communities. When you donate to your Y, you’re donating for a better us. 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.
