INVESTING IN MONTANA COMMUNITIES
As a leading nonprofit partner throughout the country, the Y has the track record and on–the–ground presence to move communities forward, just as we do here in Montana. As a charity, we work every day to address community needs and ensure that all are welcome and that no one is turned away for an inability to pay.
MONTANA STATE ALLIANCE OF YMCA FACTS
There is no other nonprofit quite like the Y. That’s because in 10,000 neighborhoods across the nation, we have the presence and partnerships to not just promise, but to deliver, lasting personal and social change.
YMCAs are often the first employer of young people. We also offer adults the opportunity to supplement their income while exercising. Our employees have a significant impact on the economies of our communities.
