You may have noticed things look a little different around your Y these days. Whether you’re running on the treadmill, passing through the hallway or grabbing a cup of coffee, there's a chance you’ll see the smiling faces and stories of some of our members, along with a call to help us give even more like them the opportunity to access the Y.
Why do we ask?
Good question! Though we are a gym (and many in Middle Tennessee interact with us that way), we’re first and foremost a cause: a charitable organization committed to the well-being of individuals and families from all backgrounds, income levels and walks of life. It’s our mission to provide access to all who walk through our doors—and we rely on the generosity of donors to make that happen. That’s what the Annual Giving Campaign is all about.
What does giving make possible?
When donors give, people have the opportunity to improve their health in a supportive, faith-focused environment. Kids (like Evie and her friends in the photo above) develop valuable skills that keep them safe and instill confidence—skills like learning to swim. Families strengthen bonds, seniors forge friendships, and our community grows ever stronger. Donors are our partners in keeping this promise to strengthen community. We couldn’t do it without them!
