Nurturing the potential of every child and teen.
We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. At the Y, children and teens learn values and positive behaviors that makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

COVID-19 RESPONSE FUND
The Y and our mission is bigger than a building. Our members, program participants and supporters are what keeps us going, keeps us strong and keeps us in service for those who need us the most, especially during these difficult times. We are a community. We bring people together – from all backgrounds and circumstances – and create personal connections that change lives through membership and programs. But the nature of this virus, and how it spreads, presents significant challenges for our Y. This spring, our facilities were closed except for Essential Child Care Services being offered for families with no other option. We have been offering virtual support for members health and wellness, wellness checks on our most vulnerable members, and have been partnering with the Community Blood Center for blood drives. Closing our facility and canceling programs caused a serious loss of revenue for the Y – unlike anything we have ever experienced. Now, more than ever, the Y needs your support.

Celebrate the Season of Giving
We’ve all heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but GivingTuesday is probably new to most of us. Now entering its ninth year, GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, GivingTuesday kicks-off the charitable season.
GivingTuesday connects individuals, communities, and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving. Each year, millions of people come together for GivingTuesday to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live. Community is important to us at the YMCA. We believe it's valuable to be involved in your community because you can personally affect change for yourself and those around you.
Social media has the power to bring about change, and why not use it to create positive change? Start using the hashtag #GivingTuesday on your social media accounts to tell your friends and family why the Y is important to you. With GivingTuesday, we are given a space where we are motivated to bring about change in our communities and demonstrate our common capacity to give. You can give time or expertise, monetary donations large or small, or simply share acts of kindness. Every act of generosity counts, and each means even more when we give together.
We are proud to be a part of the global celebration of giving on Tuesday, November 30. Won't you join us?

Today, our Y benefits from the volunteers and donors who came before us. It was their foresight and generosity that made many of today's facilities and programs possible. Many generous individuals wish to make gifts in the future to the Marshfield Area YMCA. They are giving through their estate plans or making immediate contributions that can generate life income or special tax benefits. Each year, those individuals who choose to place the Y in their wills or estate plans become members of the Heritage Club. Click here for more information on our YMCA Endowment Fund.
