Green Rocker Society

In 1906 a visionary leader named Willis Weatherford founded YMCA Blue Ridge.  More than 100 years later, we celebrate another milestone as we inaugurate a new generation of community leaders as members of the Green Rocker Society. These generous supporters commit to making YMCA Blue Ridge a philanthropic priority that ensures those programs are open to all, and our role in preparing the next generation of leaders.

What is the Green Rocker Society?

A giving society where donors make a three year commitment of at least $1,000 per year to the YMCA Blue Ridge Annual Campaign.
