SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Saratoga Regional YMCA (SRYMCA) officially kicked off its “Imagine a Better Us” Annual Campaign on Sunday, February 23, to ensure that everyone in our community has access to vital community programs and resources that support youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

Every day, SRYMCA works to support those who need us most by addressing community issues, nurturing the potential of every child and teen, providing quality childcare, offering chronic disease prevention programs, and provide support to our neighbors in need. Imagine a community that eliminates financial barriers and provides a welcoming and friendly space for all to learn, grow, and thrive.

“Throughout our region, countless people know the Y. But there’s so much more to our Y than one might think”, said Andrew Bobbitt, Chief Executive Officer of the Saratoga Regional YMCA. 

“The Y allows our community to connect and engage with their friends and neighbors. In essence, you become a part of the Y family. As a charity, we’re dedicated to continuing to bring our community together, addressing their most pressing needs, and ensuring everyone has access to our programs and services,” Bobbitt continued. 

This year, SRYMCA hopes to raise $400,000. The Annual Campaign provides life-changing experiences and makes our whole community stronger through YMCA childcare, summer camp, aquatics, sports, wellness and many other vital programs and services, assuring that no one is turned away due to lack of funds.

Last year, charitable gifts from YMCA donors made it possible for the YMCA to award $650,000 in financial assistance; this was over a $200,000 increase from the previous year.
