The 2019 Annual Campaign, “Your Gift Changes Lives” will raise funds to continue to make the Y a place for ALL to participate.  Each year the YMCA provides its members, community businesses and community members the opportunity to “give back”.  Every dollar raised through the annual campaign is reinvested back into our community so Y programming and membership can be available to all community members who may present the need for financial assistance. 

As the newly hired Director of Development & Marketing, Joy Koch said “it didn’t take me long to see and hear the great impact that Y programming provides for our community.  I knew for my family through the years there has been an impact on healthy living through swim lessons, sports programming and fitness.  In addition to the skills learned at the Y, it also provided my family with many intangibles such as confidence and teamwork while also building valuable relationships with others.  After being here in the building each day I quickly saw further evidence that our YMCA services go far beyond the ‘gym and swim’ that many first think about. Truly our services strengthen our community and work to ‘change lives’…one life at a time!”

In 2018 the YMCA provided donor-sponsored support to more than 2,000 members with more than $60,000 given in subsidized services to families and individuals in the Huntington community.  A goal of $70,000 has been set for the 2019 Campaign.   As one of the largest non-profit organizations in the state, the Y is dedicated to serving everyone and we are asking for community support to do so.  Your gift truly matters!  The YMCA encourages community members to be part of the gift that gives back! The Parkview Huntington YMCA is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization.  As such, all charitable gifts received in the Annual Campaign are tax-deductible to the extent of the tax code.  The goal and mission of the YMCA is putting Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body FOR ALL.  Y members are encouraged to consider their membership dues as a gift for themselves and a donation to the annual campaign is a gift given to the community.
