The Jacob Ford Annual Campaign is named in honor of an exceptional young man who found his way into the hearts of staff and members who knew him. Jacob represented everything good about our Y – togetherness, a sense of belonging, acceptance for who you are, and the love of community.
In support of our mission, the Jacob Ford Annual Campaign provides children, families, and others in our community with financial assistance to be a part of the YMCA family. In 2016, more than $550,000 was granted to our struggling neighbors, bringing everyone together under one roof. For the grandparents raising their grandkids on a fixed income or the single parents working to make ends meet, your support helps us continue to enrich the lives of everyone needing a safe place to belong.
100% of these funds stay in our local communities!
