YMCA: Imagine Fund

YMCA Scholastic Centers

The first initiative of the Imagine Fund is launching now at YMCA's across our region! The YMCA of Greater Cincinnati will open six scholastic centers for children whose schools are opting for remote and blended learning for the school year.

The centers will give students a safe place to engage in virtual learning during the day. Remote and blended-learning models have brought additional challenges for working parents in the age of COVID-19 and the Y is stepping up to help.

Funders once again will help us fuel this initiative so that kids can learn in a safe environment while parents/guardians are at work.

Join us as we continue to image what can be, together!

Imagine, together

The YMCA of Greater Cincinnati is charting a new path, reimagining how we strengthen community, together. Everyone has a role to play and you are invited to IMAGINE with us.

Our community has changed. What remains constant is our promise to serving the community through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. We deliver this promise through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.

Together we must imagine what our future will be as a community. The way we will care for one another has been impacted by the pandemic. How the Y will help others grow in spirit, mind and body may forever be changed as a result. Standing together, we can chart a stronger path forward for ourselves, our neighbors and our community.

The YMCA: IMAGINE Fund will fuel Social Responsibility through the Y.

  • Continued pandemic relief efforts.
  • Ensuring the health and safety of our participants post COVID-19.
  • Growing critical programs for children, families and seniors.
  • Empowering individuals to create lasting change through volunteerism.

As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the Y relies on program sales, membership fees, and donations to operate. COVID-19 significantly impacted the ability to deliver ongoing mission-critical services while expanding programs to meet new community challenges. Join our cause today by supporting the YMCA: Imagine Fund. Your gift will impact the lives of our neighbors needing the most support right now.

YMCA: COVID-19 Relief Efforts

Like the rest of the world, the YMCA of Greater Cincinnati pivoted to serve community at large during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Y shifted fitness services to virtual options and opened facilities only to essential employees needing access to child care during this time.

The Y facilitated wellness care to the nearly 15,000 area seniors that usually spend their time at the Y. Volunteers made wellness calls to senior members and connecting them with needed resources. With our partners, we offered meals and food access to children and seniors as well as families to ensure everyone had access to the food they need during this crisis.

As we work to move forward, together we want to hear from you. Share your thoughts through this 3-minute survey and tell us how you are navigating out of the pandemic.
