YMCA Blue Ridge strengthens the foundations of communities by providing opportunities for everyone to be healthy and thrive, to connect with others, and to contribute to a better community.
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.
You can help us transform lives by donating to our Annual Giving Program and becoming a part of this collective effort to create opportunities for people of all ages to learn, grow and thrive. We offer a range of scholarships because we care about the guests we serve and believe that no deserving child, teen or family should be turned away because of financial need. Your support makes this possible.
Thanks to support provided by the Annual Giving Program in the past year, we’ve impacted lives:
2,473 students with school groups who build confidence through outdoor adventures
2,708 youth for a week of character development
18 BOLD & GOLD explorers developing courage and emotional intelligence through wilderness-based leadership training
70 cancer survivors for a weekend of rejuvenation and fellowship
100 college-age staff who grew into well-rounded, values driven leaders
Here’s how your gift can make a difference!
