Case for Support
Everyday, the Y strengthens communities for kids, adults, seniors and families with programs that protect, teach, connect, heal, nourish and encourage. It’s how we give everyone the opportunities they need to reach their full potential.
- Provide kids a safe environment for out–of–school time with a subsidized afterschool program and summer day camp. Our program will serve an estimated 200 children and give them a structured environment making them less likely to engage in harmful behavior.
- In 2019 we provided $47,386 in youth program subsidies to nurture the potential of children and teens throughout Enid and surrounding communities. 2,570 children thrived in Y programs filling discretionary hours with positive activities and caring, adult attention.
- $120,809 transformed lives of 386 youth and teens and 135 families through direct memberships financial assistance from the Y.
- Seniors, adults, families and kids of all backgrounds took a step toward better health through YMCA programs and healthy living activities.
|ANNUAL CAMPAIGN GOAL||$175,000|
More than 300 youth and teens are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement through the Y Back A Youth program each year.
The Y is for everyone. We don’t turn anyone away due to an inability to pay. Financial assistance is available to individuals and families who cannot afford membership or program participation.
Support healthy living with programs that tackle chronic disease and obesity in addition to wellness programs that keep older adults active.
Currently 200 seniors actively participate in the Silver Sneakers program.
Chronic diseases such as cancer and high blood pressure are non-discriminatory and can strike anyone. The Y offers free wellness programs throughout the community that support the management of, or even aid in the prevention of, obesity and contributing factors for such illnesses.
Ensure the Y remains open to all offering financial assistance to those for whom financial resources are a barrier to participation.
Each year members of our community turn to the Y for support to help them achieve their own wellness goals, engage their children in nurturing programs and activities and build friendships. The Y ensures that no one is turned away due to an inability to pay. Over 1500 teenagers are members of the Y and are provided a safe, fun place to hang out, play and exercise.
Instill an ethic of volunteerism by providing opportunities for our neighbors to give back and serve their communities in a variety of ways throughout the year.
Coaching a youth sports league, helping children gain confidence in the water through Swim Team, and assisting with free father/daughter and father/son events are a few volunteering opportunities available to our community.
Collaborations with other non-profits and community partners fulfill our social responsibility. The Boy Scouts, YWCA, Habitat for Humanity, Red Cross, Vance AFB, local Schools and churches, are just a few such collaborations.
We need your philanthropic support to make it happen.
When you donate to the DENNY PRICE FAMILY YMCA, you help us provide kids and families in Enid and Garfield county with the programs and services they need to thrive.
The Y. For a better us.
