At the YMCA one of our most important goals has always been to enrich the lives of kids in our community. But when some are left out it leaves us all a little poorer. That’s because giving kids a safe and nurturing place to go benefits everyone. By introducing them to experiences that will help them grow into responsible, successful adults, we make the community we love a better place to live. One child at a time. One family at a time. YMCA programs teach young people important values such as caring, honesty, responsibility and respect. Through a variety of fun and rewarding activities, they also develop valuable skills while they gain confidence and self esteem. You simply can’t put a price on strengthening and enriching the character of a child.
Membership and program fees at the YMCA of Central New Mexico do not cover all the costs to support these vital community programs. To ensure that no one is denied a chance to participate because of an inability to pay, we need your help. Through the YMCA’s Annual Campaign your contribution helps us provide program support and financial assistance to families who need it in our community. Only by working together can we give more kids the opportunity to grow in spirit, mind and body.
Financial assistance is based on ability to pay. It is the policy of the YMCA of Central New Mexico that no person be denied membership or program participation by reason of inability to pay fees. Funds made available for financial assistance are provided through the YMCA’s Annual Campaign.
At the YMCA, we strive to make sure that every child’s day brings about bigger and brighter achievements – but we can’t do it alone! Your contribution to the YMCA’s Annual Campaign ensures that children who are unable to pay are included in programs that will teach values that will positively impact their lives and the community we live in.
