Annual Giving Program

YMCA Blue Ridge’s Annual Giving Program provides opportunities for youth, teens, and families to experience the Mountain: to come to us as guests and be nourished in spirit, mind and body, and to connect, grow and learn.

As a charitable organization, we help all people realize their full potential by providing financial support to those who cannot afford the full cost of a life-changing Mountaintop experience. At YMCA Blue Ridge, we make giving easy. Scroll down to donate your desired amount, or join one of our Giving Societies, outlined below.

The Blue Ridge Spirit Society

Our staff has the Blue Ridge Spirit! The Blue Ridge Spirit Society is our group of Blue Ridge-employed givers: those who serve at the Assembly and see the impact of our work each day on the lives of our guests. If you work at the Assembly and would like to give, please contact Suzette Armatas at
