Whether due to unemployment, poor health, or special circumstance, people struggle to provide for their families. Thanks to the Annual Support Campaign, each year the Westfield Area YMCA provides over $400,000 in direct financial assistance to individuals and families in need to enable their participation at the Y.
No one who lives or works in Westfield, Cranford, Garwood or Mountainside and is experiencing a bona fide financial hardship is turned away for inability to pay. Approximately 90% of scholarship awards enable children to attend the Y’s early learning, school age complement and summer day camp programs while approximately 10% supports membership and program participation.
Your gift will help young people achieve their potential, empower people of all ages to lead healthier lives, and strengthen the bonds of our community. Please give today. Give for a better us.
