Our Annual fundraising campaign has two primary purposes.  The first is to tell the story of the YMCA to as many persons as possible by providing information about the scope and quality of work the YMCA offers to its community.

The second is to raise funds to provide scholarships to qualified low-income families in our community.  The money raised goes toward providing membership, youth sports, camp, after school care, swimming lessons and other programs and services offered by the YMCA.  Needless to say each year, the money we raise makes a meaningful difference in the lives of families throughout the Port Arthur area.

Goal: $100,000.00

One hundred percent of all contributions go back to the community, providing children and families membership and program scholarships that would not be possible without the support of people like you.  No contribution is too much or too little.  You decide where your contribution goes.

Banner Campaign

Beginning at the $500 level, 3′ x 6′ banners are hung in the YMCA gymnasium for the year.  $1,000 or more contributions, 4′ x 8′ banners will be hung in the YMCA gymnasium.  Corporate logos can be used on the banner if artwork is provided.
This level of sponsorship will include display in the YMCA gymnasium during 2015.  It is an excellent way to support the work of the YMCA and let the community know that your business helps children and families participate in YMCA programs and membership opportunities.
The banner program is a wonderful way to honor or memorialize friends and family members.
Gifts can be pledged for payment between now and December 31, 2015.


This year’s ambitious goal is $100,000.00   Donations help over 3,000 people experience the positive effects of YMCA programs and services.
