About the Building Community Campaign

The YMCA Building Community Campaign is focused on raising much needed financial support for children, teens and families who are unable to afford the full cost of participation in a YMCA program or activity. The YMCA Building Community Campaign helps one person at a time, one family at a time, or one program at a time.

The YMCA of Yarmouth Building Community Campaign encourages people within our community to help support the YMCA so that it can offer programs and memberships to children, families and individuals with financial struggles. It is aimed at raising public awareness and much needed financial support for the work the YMCA does to provide children, teens, and families with the values, life skills and healthy lifestyle they need to succeed.

The YMCA encourages the development of a healthy community through health, fitness and recreational programs, and it believes everyone in the community should have the opportunity to participate.

Funds raised through the Building Community Campaign allow us to open our doors to everyone, regardless of their financial situation. We encourage you to invest in a child today. No Risks. Only Returns.


The YMCA would like to acknowledge the generous contribution made by Mr. David Hall for our Building Community Campaign. Mr. Hall has kicked off our fundraiser by donating $20,000!

Having been involved with the YMCA since his youth, Mr. Hall has quite fond memories of his social experiences and the athletic activities he enjoyed during his formative years at the facility. He even attended the now defunct Camp Wapomeo in Carlton as a youth.

When asked why donate to Building Community Campaign Mr. Hall enthused, “The friendships I’ve made in the YMCA have carried on through my entire life! I hope to help others enjoy the same benefits.”

We are deeply grateful for his generous contribution! Our goal this year is $150,000 so we still have a ways to go. We hope Mr. Hall’s generous contribution will inspire others to give to our Building Community Campaign. There are no donations too small, with each kind contribution we climb closer to our goal. Our goal funds programs and assisted memberships  that provide for a stronger community. The youth in our area count on us for a place to go for social and sports related experiences that will help create a strong foundation for them to grow from. We, in turn, look to our community members to help us help the community. When you invest in the kids you are investing in your community’s future!
