Let's Transform Buffalo Together
Founded in 1852, YMCA Buffalo Niagara is the second-oldest YMCA in the United States and one of the oldest institutions in Western New York. As a charitable, non-profit organization, YMCA Buffalo Niagara delivers much-needed services to the Western New York community with an emphasis on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.
We need your support to help build a new YMCA in Buffalo and positively impact future generations and thousands of Western New Yorkers who lack services in their communities. This new, 65,000 square foot YMCA on Elmwood Avenue will serve those living in the 14207 zip code and beyond. The New Buffalo YMCA will be an accessible, central community space where all - regardless of age, ability, background, or income level can participate, connect, and thrive for generations to come.
Investing in the Future
Positive, lasting change can only happen when we work together to invest in our kids, our health, and our neighbors. With this new facility, the YMCA will impact over 10,000 people annually in Buffalo and its surrounding communities. Some of the building's planned features include:
