Who We Are - Our Charitable Mission
The South Shore YMCA is a charity. Dollars raised through charitable gifts to our Change a Life Fund ensure financial assistance and accessibility to programs and services for all.
Why We Fundraise
Your Y membership and program fees cover the Y’s operating expenses. The financial assistance opportunities we provide are fully funded through charitable donations to the Y’s Change a Life Fund, which is raised annually.
100% of donations to the Change a Life Fund are used to ensure no one is ever turned away.

How We Fundraise
Each year, requests for donations to our Change a Life Fund are made to our Staff, Board, Members, and the Community to raise the funds necessary to keep the Y accessible to all.
Funds are also raised through Memorial Gifts, Planned Giving, Corporate Matching Gifts and our Signature Special Events: The Taste of the South Shore (March); Golf Classic (July); Rodman Ride (September); and Enchanted Evening Gala (November).
