We’re more than a place, we’re a cause. Every day, the YMCA of Greater Westfield strengthens the community through programs and services focused on:
YOUTH DEVELOPMENT All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, under the guidance of caring adults who believe in their potential. We see every interaction with young people as an opportunity for learning and development—all grounded in the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
HEALTHY LIVING Health and well-being are all about balance. That’s why we help people and families build and maintain healthy habits for spirit, mind and body in their everyday lives. By helping kids, adults, families and seniors from all walks of life to improve their health and well-being, we build a stronger community.
SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY With our doors open to all, we bring together people from all backgrounds, and support those who need us most. We take on the most urgent needs in our community and inspire a spirit of service in return. Our members, volunteers, supporters and staff demonstrate the power of what we can achieve by giving back together.
We have an extraordinary opportunity to ensure a brighter future for our community, but we need your help. Your gift to The YMCA of Greater Westfield will have a lasting impact in the community by helping us to reach more people through life changing programs and services.

SO MUCH MORE IS POSSIBLE WITH YOUR SUPPORT
Last year the YMCA of Greater Westﬁeld served close to 6,000 families, adults and children. Through our ﬁnancial assistance program we helped over 900 families and children and provided over $200,000 dollars in scholarships. With your support, the Annual Campaign ensures that the YMCA is there for those who need us most. Your generous donation helps us fulﬁll our mission and vision every day. With a commitment to nurturing the potential of every child and teen, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that every individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive regardless of their ability to pay. When you support the Y, you help assure that everyone has a chance to beneﬁt from all that the YMCA has to offer. Every dollar raised goes directly to providing ﬁnancial assistance.
