FAQ's

  • Why should I give to
    the Y?

    Your support is integral in helping the YMCA continue our commitment to providing quality programs to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. You benefit from having a strong YMCA in your community. Our programs for youth provide meaningful opportunities for young people to grow into responsible adults. The YMCA makes your community a better place to live and work.
  • Doesn't the Y receive funding from United Way?
    No, the Kettle Moraine YMCA does not receive any United Way funding.
  • Why should I give when
    I already pay monthly membership dues?

    Membership dues and programs fees cover the cost of maintaining and operating YMCA facilities and programs. Donations to the Annual Scholarship Campaign provide financial assistance for individuals and families who cannot afford membership or programs fees, but can benefit from participating in our programs. Contributions also help to keep the cost of the Y programs.
  • Is my gift tax-deductible?
    We greatly appreciate your gift, which is fully deductible as a charitable contribution. The Kettle Moraine YMCA is a tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization and registered with the I.R.S. Tax ID #39-1175559.
  • How can I double my donation?
    Do you or your spouse work for a company that matches charitable donations? Contact your HR department to find out! A simple form may be all it takes to double or even triple the impact of your gifts!

Annual Campaign: The Y. So Much More™

The Kettle Moraine YMCA is a charity, dedicated to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Athletics to advocacy, dance classes to disease prevention, volleyball to volunteerism—we don't just strengthen individuals, we strengthen communities.

Many of the vital community programs and services provided by the Y are not supported by membership dollars—they're supported by you. Much of our work is fueled by the generosity of neighbors helping neighbors.

Every year, we raise funds to ensure that those who need us most have access to quality programs, activities and facilities. When you give to our Annual Campaign you make a difference in the lives of people from all backgrounds and economic levels.

Today's world also presents great opportunities to provide people the positive support they need to succeed in life. We're here to help meet those needs and make those opportunities a reality.
