Donations to the YMCA Blue Ridge Annual Giving Program provide scholarships and outreach for Y youth conferences; Go Outside, Grow Outside outdoor programming; BOLD & GOLD wilderness leadership; intergenerational family programming; and international programs and ambassadorships - just to name a few. The Annual Giving Program is the heartbeat of Blue Ridge's giving and philanthropy, dedicated to serving all.
Y Blue Ridge is a place where everyone is welcome, regardless of race, age, religion, or financial circumstances. The Annual Giving Program provides the funds for kids and families who cannot fully afford the cost of a Mountaintop experience and assistance for many of the groups who come to us. The program focuses specifically on providing children and teens with an encouraging space to learn positive life skills, forge lifelong relationships, and help all achieve their full potential as cause-driven, compassionate leaders.
YMCA Blue Ridge is a 501(c)3 charity and a philanthropic organization serving Western North Carolina, the Southeastern U.S., and beyond. We are dedicated to helping children and families live healthier, more productive lives in spirit, mind, and body. And we need volunteers like you to make the Annual Giving Program possible.
Annual Giving Program volunteers are passionate about the YMCA and the good we do for individuals and in communities. They visit YMCA programs and learn how we make an impact every day, meeting with donors face to face and by phone to discover what motivates each donor to give. Volunteers thank donors and attend Annual Giving Program special events, such as alumni gatherings and community events.
