YMCA of Auburn-Lewiston

Join Our Cause

The YMCA of Auburn-Lewiston transforms lives and develops the next generation of community leaders.

Join us in making an impact in our community

People know us best for our fitness center and child care programs, but that is just part of what we do. The YMCA of Auburn-Lewiston develops and nurtures the potential of more than 3,000 residents every year. Our nonprofit network of child care sites, two fitness centers, and well-known community summer camps provide everyone with a safe place to learn, play, and grow.

Motivated by the causes of youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y opens doors, builds character, strengthens neighborhoods, and brings families together.

We invite you to join our cause with a tax-deductible gift to the YMCA. All gifts support Y kids and families through our scholarship programs.

there are many ways to partner and give ...

Being Socially Responsible isn’t just about making a donation.  There are many different ways to give, to include donating your time and talent!

Volunteering is one of the highest forms of personal giving.  Whether it be in the fitness center at the front desk, helping in child watch, or serving as a coach,  volunteers are the lifeblood of the Y.  Without volunteers, many of our programs couldn’t run.  If you’ve got time and talent you want to share, please contact Marcie at mhird@alymca.org.  Note: certain volunteer positions may include no-cost individual memberships.

Giving online is safe, easy, and secure.  You can either give a one-time donation or set up a re-occurring monthly gift.  To give online, click here.  For more information, contact Marcie at mhird@alymca.org

Not sure about giving online but still want to send a gift to support your favorite YMCA cause?   You can do that by making checks payable to “YMCA of Auburn-Lewiston” and send to YMCA of Auburn-Lewiston (Attn: Development Department), 62 Turner Street, Auburn, ME 04210.  A tax deductible receipt will be promptly sent to your return address.   

We understand that you may want to give to a specific cause, but the timing just is not right.  If that is the cause, we have non-binding pledge statements that you can use to designate a gift, cause, and timeline.  For more information, contact Jason at jbuchanan@alymca.org.

United Way organizations across the State of Maine are charitable partners with a multitude of community agencies.  As such, you can designate your United Way Contribution, either in part or in whole, to the YMCA of Auburn-Lewiston.  Ask your United Way Loaned Executive or company representative how.  If you have questions on whether or not your United Way contribution has been received, please contact Jason at jbuchanan@alymca.org.
