About Our Strong Community Campaign
For more than 150 years, the Y has delivered lasting personal and social change to children, adults and families in neighborhoods across St. Louis area. The Y is the nation’s leading nonprofit dedicated to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
We count on the generosity of our members and partners who give to our Strong Community Campaign to welcome all who need a healthy, connected and secure place to go.

As a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) charity, the YMCA has provided millions of dollars in assistance over the years. We can only do that with your help. Please make your tax deductible gift today!
At the Y, no child, family or adult is turned away.

2012 Strong Community
Susan has been a member of the Y for more than 25 years. While living in Wentzville, she joined the St. Charles YMCA, the closest YMCA at the time. After a serious illness, during which she was in a coma and hospitalized for seven weeks, Susan’s health care provider suggested swimming as a great addition to her recovery process. She soon added weight lifting and a Muscles in Motion class. “I considered this workout routine my “physical therapy” to regain my stamina, strength and energy,” Susan said. Now a member of the Tri-County Family YMCA, Susan continues to work out in the fitness center and attends Pilates and Silver Sneakers classes to maintain her health, thanks to those who give to the Strong Community Campaign. “I have benefitted greatly from the kindness, patience and expertise of my instructors,” she said. “The Y is an invaluable part of my life in every regard—thank you!”
Please consider a donation today to the 2012 Strong Community Campaign so together we can strengthen the foundations of our community.
