When you give to the Y, you’re doing your part to strengthen our community—and a strong community is good for everyone. Whether you’re helping a child in need attend summer camp, giving someone the assistance they need to make a healthy change in their life, or contributing to the construction of a new Y facility, your gift will let us continue to affect positive change in our region.
Help Build the New Y!
Since our current facility on Patterson was constructed over 60 years ago, the Y has responded to the changing demands of our local community. Those years of flexibility and responsiveness have served us well, but our walls can no longer accommodate the community's needs. Our future new flagship Y is about more than a new building, we're building the foundation to continue our 135-year legacy of serving the needs of Lane County, Oregon.
As of May 10, 2022, all donations and pledges to the campaign for a new Y will be matched 1:1 by the Tykeson Family Foundation! Your gift today has double the impact!!
Together, we can keep our community strong and vibrant for generations to come!
Give to the Annual Campaign!
At the Eugene Family YMCA, everything we do is guided by our commitment to support our community, and this is even more critical now. Together we can provide child care to working families and offer financial assistance to ensure ALL children have access to Y programs and services despite financial hardships. Together we can provide 100% financial assistance to those displaced by the wildfires to participate in all-day child care or receive 3-month facility memberships for showers and respite.
At the Eugene Family YMCA, we believe EVERYONE DESERVES OPPORTUNITY regardless of race, religion, socioeconomic status, physical or mental ability, gender, sex, age, belief, size or culture.
Please join us in ensuring that all kids, families, individuals and seniors have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive by making a gift to the Annual Campaign.
Together, we can keep our community strong and vibrant during these exceptionally challenging times.
