Annual Campaign

2017 annual campaign

ymca of greater birmingham

Every day, the YMCA of Greater Birmingham gives our community the support it needs to learn, grow and thrive.  From preschool, out of school time, and STEM education to water safety and disease prevention, everything we do helps strengthen our neighborhood and the people who live here.

But keeping greater Birmingham great is a full-time job. Every day, our community faces new challenges that create a greater need for the work we do. And we need your help to do it. Your gift can help our community, and everyone in it, shine.

youth development

The YMCA of Greater Birmingham believes that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. That’s why, through the Y, thousands of kids are cultivating the values, skills, and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health, and educational achievement each and every day.

The Y nurtures the potential of every child and teen by supporting their unique development journey through holistic and educational programming, providing all youth with the tools and resources they need to succeed in life.

social responsibility

With our doors open to all, we bring together people from all backgrounds and support those who need us most. We take on the most urgent needs in our community and inspire a spirit of service in return. Our members, volunteers, supporters, and staff demonstrate the power of what we can achieve by giving back together. 

We know that when we work together, we move individuals, families, and communities forward. The Y responds to society’s most pressing needs by developing innovative, community-based solutions to help those in need to reach their full potential.
