Greater Philadelphia YMCA
Building Stronger Communities Through Healthy Living
The Y is one of the nation's leading nonprofits strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. Throughout the Greater Philadelphia region, we serve more than 180,000 members and 240,000 individuals a year- regardless of age, income, or background.
Our mission is all about connecting people to healthier lives - in mind, body, and spirit. While our programs and facilities are always based on the unique needs and interests of our communities, every Y has one thing in common: our people. The volunteers, staff, members, and donors of the Y are all united by a deep commitment to building stronger communities and being a place where all are welcome.
As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, the Y provides crucial programs and services to more than 250,000 people every year. With the help of generous donors, we are able to provide more than $6 million in financial assistance enabling members of our community to get healthy and provide safe, trusted care for their children.
