The Power
of US

We believe the YMCA is uniquely suited to meet our community’s needs and we continue to prove it every day through the reinvention of the organization in an effort to better serve the area’s ever-changing social landscape.

Our Donors ensure everyone can find this at the Y. Support like yours eliminates financial barriers by enabling the Y to reduce membership and program fees for those most in need. From opportunities that enrich our community’s next generation to those that help families live healthier lifestyles, your gift to the Y is an invitation for someone to discover their full potential.

What Community means to US 

The Family YMCA works with the community of Black Hawk County enriching, assisting, and engaging in their lives. Communities are the heart and soul of our society, comprising diverse groups of people who share common interests, goals, and challenges. By actively participating in community initiatives and lending a helping hand, individuals create a ripple effect that transcends boundaries and fosters a sense of unity.

Annual Giving Campaign

Making Lives Better Forever

Each year, the Family YMCA of Black Hawk County conducts its Annual Campaign to help make our mission a reality by allowing all that wish, to have access to Y programs and services. When you give to the Y, you are providing children teens, adults and families in our community the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. Without the financial support of our donors through the Annual Campaign, we could not fulfill our mission that the Y is available… FOR ALL.
