How to Support YMCA Youth and Government

As a program of the YMCA, one of the largest 501(c)3 non-profit organizations in the country, our Youth and Government programs rely on the generous support of our donors.

Each state program engages in fundraising campaigns throughout the year, and we encourage you to reach out to staff in your state to learn more about how you can give. If you are interested in supporting the program on a national level, please contact Derek Summerville at
