Jacob Ford Annual Campaign

The Jacob Ford Annual Campaign is named in honor of an exceptional young man who found his way into the hearts of staff and members who knew him. Jacob represented everything good about our Y – togetherness, a sense of belonging, acceptance for who you are, and the love of community.

When you give to the Y, you help provide individuals and families in our community the opportunity to be healthy, build connections and reach their full potential. Our Annual Campaign is a Y initiative that provides financial assistance for programs and memberships to children and families in need... at the Y, no one is turned away due to the inability to pay. Funds raised through our Annual Campaign support our community and are made available to local youth, families, and adults. 

Together, we can create a better us.
