Make An Impact

Each year, the Merrimack Valley YMCA raises funds to ensure that our Y has the resources to strengthen the community and make an enduring impact right here in the areas of youth  development, healthy living and social responsibility. Last year the  YMCA awarded $601,534 in financial assistance to more than 3000 members of our community.

Whether it’s providing 350 children a safe and nurturing classroom to learn and thrive, supporting over 500 kids in our teen programs or teaching 8000 children water safety in swim lessons at the YMCA, we provide high quality programs and services to our community. With you support we can continue to make these and many other programs accessible to those in need.
