Each day at the La Crosse Area Family YMCA, thousands of community members of all ages, experiences, and backgrounds come together to focus on wellness, practice a hobby or sport, socialize with friends, and more. The Y is the La Crosse area's best "Third Place" and we are proud to offer a venue for connection and collaboration for everyone in our community.

Inspired? So are we. Together we can build a better us.

Investing in the Y's Annual Campaign is an investment in a stronger community. Together, we provide access to the YMCA for one in four members through the Y's Membership For All program. Together, we feed our community through the Y's robust Food Access Program. Together, we care for 1,000 children daily in our childcare programs. Together, we support our neighbors most impacted by poverty. Together, we give strength to adult and youth cancer survivors. Together we are providing mental health education and resources for all members and participants.

Gifts to the Y's Annual Campaign ensure that thousands have the opportunity to learn, to grow, and to thrive at the Y. Please join us by making a pledge to the campaign.
