Annual Support CampaignEach year the Westfield Area YMCA provides nearly $400,000 in financial assistance to individuals and families in need to enable their participation in Y programs and memberships. Your gift will help young people achieve their potential, empower people of all ages to lead healthier lives, and strengthen families and the bonds of our community.
Special Needs ProgramsThe 5K Run for Everyone supports special needs programs at the Westfield Area YMCA. Past proceeds established and continue to support the Dragonfly Program, which offers physical, recreational and social programs for young adults and teens with special needs for free or at minimal cost and enabled the Y to hire a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist to oversee these programs and develop new ones. Proceeds also support the Y's summer Inclusion Camp program for children with special needs entering grades K-6. This link offers the ability to support special needs programs all year round.
Capital CampaignThe goal of this multi-year capital improvement project is to meet current and future community needs by focusing on ADA-accessibility and infrastructure enhancements. Commemorate what the YMCA means to you, your family or your friends with a personalized wall tile installed at the Y. Proceeds benefit the capital campaign.
