Capital Campaign




People feel a strong obligation to effect change in their communities.

A national YMCA survey* revealed that 36 percent of people ranked themselves as having the biggest obligation and greatest opportunity to effect local change, even more so than federal, state or local governments.

The YMCA of Greater Cleveland’s Capital Campaign provides an opportunity for people to do just that: improve the quality of life in their communities, for themselves, their children, and their neighbors.

The YMCA is community focused, community funded, and governed by our community volunteers, making it a non-profit like no other. We provide enormous benefits to the 57 communities in more than 100 neighborhoods in the four counties in Northeast Ohio where we have a presence.

We invite you to join us in this important cause to help our communities thrive as we continue our work to reduce chronic disease, promote healthy living, tackle childhood and adult obesity, create safe spaces for children and teens, bring families and communities together, and practice social responsibility by giving back.

* Results from a national YMCA survey conducted from June 25 to June 30, 2010 of 1,500 Americans age 18 or older, to better understand how they feel about the quality of life in their communities and the biggest challenges and opportunities facing their communities today.
