When you give to the Y, the Y is able to give everyone the opportunity to be healthy and thrive, to connect with others and contribute to a better community. Our Annual Support Campaign is an Arlington-Mansfield Area YMCA initiative that provides financial assistance for programs and memberships to individuals, children, and families in need… at the Y, no one is turned away due to the inability to pay. Funds raised through our Annual Support Campaign remain in our community and are made available to local youth, families, and adults.
