Your gift to Manatee YMCA Annual Community Scholarship Campaign means that somewhere in your community a YMCA door opens to a child, a family, a senior, who would otherwise be unable to afford it. You open the door to swimming lessons, youth sports, recreation, before and after school programs, tutoring, fitness,dance, programs that teach strong core values... Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility. Your gifts are truly investments in the quality of life for others. Whether you make a once a year gift or monthly gifts, your gifts add up to the Y’s strong belief that when, “everyone plays, everyone wins”. Our commitment is to never deny anyone access to programs and facilities due to an inability to pay. Each year we provide more than 1,200 scholarships to individuals and families who otherwise cannot afford to participate. These important scholarships are made possible by people donating to our Annual Community Scholarship Campaign.
