Did you know the YMCA of Greater Boston provides Early Education, Before-and-After School Care and Summer Camp programming to over 5,500 children annually, 65% of whom are from families not able to afford child care?

In Boston, many children from low-income families enter school unprepared to succeed. But when these children enter the Y’s programs, a whole new world of hope, knowledge and opportunity opens up for them.  They build their critical thinking and social emotional skills and receive support from trained, caring YMCA staff, while experiencing a safe and nurturing environment.  Children in the Y’s care also form long-lasting relationships that strengthen their development, growth and self-confidence.

No matter which way you choose to give, you’ll find your way to transform the future of children in our community and become a meaningful member of the YMCA family.

Your gift is an investment in the future:

  • $25 provides children access to books to our early education lending libraries that encourage parents and children to read together at home.
  • $50 helps children attend our after school program where they receive homework help and participate in healthy activities
  • $100 helps children stay nourished in our programs where healthy meals and snacks are served.
  • $250 provides a child with a nurturing and enriching environment at a week of Y summer camp.
