Is the Y a charitable organization?

The YMCA of Central Texas is a non-profit organization recognized by the Internal Revenue Service with a 501(c)3 charitable designation. All donations made to the YMCA of Central Texas are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. When you pledge money to our Annual Campaign, 100% of your donation is used to provide financial assistance to those who cannot otherwise afford to participate in Y programs.

Who are contributors to the Y?

Individuals, families, businesses, community partners, foundations, churches, civic groups and government grants all support the work of the Y.

Why should I give to the Y if I am not a member?

Your support is still needed. Membership fees and donations are two different sources of income – both tied to our charitable mission. Income from program and membership fees, as well as government sources, cover the Y’s operating costs, program delivery and membership services. Unfortunately, they do not cover the cost of financial assistance for economically disadvantaged youth and families.

Donations to our Annual Campaign go directly to fund scholarships that benefit young people, adults and families. Your donations support our efforts in the community to provide meaningful opportunities, positive experiences, and caring adult role models to help youth grow into responsible adults. Therefore, your support benefits every community member, regardless of their Y involvement.
