Thank you to those who have donated to our past Annual Scholarship Campaigns- We couldn’t do it without you!
What is the We Build People Campaign?
Our Annual Scholarship Campaign is the major fundraising campaign of the Saratoga Regional YMCA. Funds raised help those who need it most by providing financial assistance to youth, teens, families and other individuals and ensures that no one is denied the opportunity to share in the YMCA experience due to the inability to pay.
Scholarships are available for people who require it, whether in direct aid or reduced program fees. No one is turned away from the YMCA for lack of ability to pay.
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” –Gandhi
In 2013, the Saratoga Regional YMCA awarded over $1,350,000 in need-based scholarships and Naval subsidies.
Your tax-deductible contribution to the YMCA Annual Scholarship Campaign is a great investment in your community because it helps those who need it most–potentially your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers.
