Give to the Y - Overview

We're more than you know.
We're a cause.

At the Y, we connect with people every day: men, women and children from all ages and all walks of life whose stories and motivations are all unique. Many people even tell us that the Y is their family and a place where they feel they can belong. We love that about who we are.

Thanks to our donors, we are able to deliver programs and services focused on nurturing the potential of every child and teen, improving our community's health and well-being, and giving back and providing support to our neighbors. Regardless of age, income or background, we want to make sure that ALL individuals in our community have access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive.

Together, we achieve so much more.
Give to the Y and change your community.


To learn more about what we do here at the Y, meet the Faces of Our Community, watch some of our Real Stories of First Coast families and take a look through our 2013 Annual Report.

Youth Development

We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. With your support, we offer scholarships and financial assistance for our programs and activities, which range from leadership development to sports and arts, to give children and teens the opportunity to become confident kids today and a healthier, happier grown-ups tomorrow.

Healthy Living

With a mission centered on balance, we bring families closer together, encourage good health and foster connections through fitness, sports, nutrition, prevention, and, of course, fun. Together, we help millions of youth, adults and families receive the support, guidance and resources needed to achieve greater health and well-being for their spirit, mind and body.

Social Responsibility

With your help, we unite people for good and make sure everyone has a place to belong by making our services available to all, regardless of any financial barrier that may exist. We are advocates for the happiness and well-being of each and every member of the community we call family.
