Your Impact - Y Strong Kids Campaign:

Did you know, last year the Y provided over $1.05 million dollars in financial subsidies? That is why programs like the Y strong Kids Campaign are so important. With almost 23,000 children participating in Y Camps, childcare, and recreation programs, the need is continuing to grow.

We are thrilled to announce we have teamed up with a few philanthropic minded individuals and organizations, who have offered to match all new and increased donations up to $25,000 during the 2019 Y Strong Kids Campaign (from February 20 through April 20). This means that every dollar you invest with us will be doubled!

So, how does it work?

New Donor - As a first-time donor, when you make a gift to the YMCA-YWCA of the National Capital Region’s Y Strong Kids Campaign, it will be matched dollar-for-dollar. For example, a gift of $200 sends one kid to camp; but with our match program, your $200 donation will be matched for a total gift of $400 - enough to send TWO kids to camp!

Renewing Donor - As an existing donor, any increase over your 2018 gift amount will be matched. For example: if you donated $500 last year and increase to $750 this year, your $250 increase will be matched for a total gift of $1000!
