You Make the Y Possible

The mission of the Cambridge YMCA is to promote and inspire life-long development for children, adults and families through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. The Y achieves this through a broad range of activities that serve a community rich in racial, religious, ethnic, and economic diversity.
As the leading nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening communities, the Y relies on the support of neighbors like you to enable us to fulfill our commitments. There are many ways to make a contribution to the Cambridge YMCA, and your contributions allow everyone to access the resources and support they need.
