Spring Fund Drive: Consider a gift of $50

The University YMCA is kicked off its Spring Fund Drive on March 1st!

You can support the many student programs and work of the Y by making a pledge or donation during the entire month of March. Our goal for the Spring Drive is $85,000. With participation from our Board of Governors, Board of Trustees, Students, Staff, and Friends, we started with $42,000 already pledged and donated this year! Now, we've hit $65,000. So close!
You can pledge or donate online, and even use PayPal.
You can also become a member by mailing a check made payable to:
