YMCA Buffalo Niagara Announces $722,000 Annual Campaign Goal
(Buffalo, New York) -- YMCA Buffalo Niagara’s 2021 Annual Campaign kicks off today, February 11. Collectively the association is seeking the community’s support to help reach its fundraising goal of $722,000 by April 8.
Gifts to the YMCA’s Annual Campaign help fund vital programs and services that empower youth, improve community health, and provide support to our community’s most vulnerable. Like many organizations, the Y suffered a severe setback to its mission delivery and impact when its facilities closed due to the pandemic. With the help of community partners, sustaining members, and Y donors, the Y quickly adapted its services to address our community’s most prevalent needs. Since March 2020, the Y has stepped up to provide safe, enriching child care for essential workers, solutions for working parents with children in hybrid learning, and virtual wellness classes to help our community stay active and socially connected.
Anyone wishing to support the Y’s mission work can do so online at YMCABN.org/donate, by texting FOREVERSTRONG to 71777 or by reaching out to their local YMCA branch.
