As a charitable organization, The Family YMCA raises funds to ensure that no one is turned away for inability to pay. We typicall support 300 people (200 of which are children) with close to $90,000 in financial assistance (Los Alamos Census data reveals that close to 700 people live in poverty in our community). The year 2020, with the health crisis, reduced scholarships to 73 individuals, mostly children. Donors also provided support to unfunded programs at our teen center in Española, and provided financial stability to the Y during health-related business shutdowns.
Our fundraising goal for 2021 is $165,000 to meet these needs.
Your tax-deductible gift will improve lives… 1 in 5 kids in our afterschool and camp programs is on aid, and 1 in 28 adults at our Y is on assistance.
Thank you for your consideration of support for our community members.
