Our Capital Campaign

Through a 2016 Community Needs Assessment, we learned that area residents wanted services which engage the whole family.

Out of 553 responses:

19%indicated the availability of services aimed at engaging the entire family was important
34%responded that supporting youth in practicing positive habits that include physical activity and healthy eating was important.
29%responded that having a presence of community spaces where youth can develop connections with others was important
27%responded the availability of non-athletic programs that draw out youth skills, creativity and confidence was important.

After this Community Needs Assessment, we began to explore the idea of a Capital Campaign. In 2017, we conducted a Market Study that interviewed 400 non-member households and 100 YMCA member households. Some of the recommendations that came from that study showed the following:

Expand the Wellness Center, adding more machines
Add a Multi-Purpose Studio/Classroom for Group Exercise
Establish a Family Adventure Center (New indoor playground)
Establish Family Changing Locker Rooms

After conducting the Market Study in 2017, we did a Feasibility Study in 2018 that showed we could actually raise the funds and move forward with a Capital Campaign, leading us to where we are today.

Our Capital Campaign was halted in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but was reinstated on November 9, 2020.
