Having an open door in front of you means having an opportunity before you. - Revelation 3:8
You can open a door for a child, teen or family and create an opportunity for lifelong impact by supporting the Blue Ridge Annual Campaign.
100% of every dollar given to the Annual Campaign goes towards ensuring that a Mountaintop experience – the chance to learn leadership, trust, healthy lifestyles, self-discovery, and teambuilding – is available for everyone, regardless of financial circumstances.
Your gift of $250 keeps our doors open for all by making possible a range of scholarships in programs like Go Outside, Grow Outside, Boys and Girls Outdoor Leadership Development, and Collegiate Leadership, or any other program of your choosing.
A gift at this level entitles you to membership in our Open Doors Club, a dedicated group of supporters who believe in the transformational impact of YMCA programs like ours. As part of your membership, you’ll receive prominent recognition in our Annual report and a small Blue Ridge gift as a token of appreciation to go along with the knowledge that your donation has helped people of all ages to learn, grow and thrive.
“The best part of my experience was doing the ropes course. It really taught me to face my fear and to keep going even when you are scared.” Annie, Go Outside, Grow Outside
“On this trip I learned a lot about myself. I learned that I can backpack 12 miles. I learned that I can survive in the wilderness. I did things that I never thought I could have done. I now feel like I have accomplished something.” Sarah, Boys and Girls Outdoor Leadership
“Blue Ridge exposed me to a cross-cultural environment that opened my eyes to global possibilities and aspirations. The path to the development work I do today throughout Central America and my passion for languages in many ways starts with my time at Blue Ridge.” Lucas, Collegiate Leadership
