Our Charitable Mission at Work
The Findlay Family YMCA works with our neighbors to ensure everyone, regardless of age, income or background has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive, regardless of ability to pay.
The needs of our community are diverse and evolving, and the Y is needed now more than ever. Together, we strive to create a stronger community and bring about meaningful change in our community. Your support is vital to our success and enables us to be an essential component of the lives of so many in our area.

Nurturing the potential of every child and teen
The Y nurtures the potential of every child and teen by supporting their unique youth development journey through holistic programming. From cradle to career, the Y provides youth with the tools and resources they need to succeed in life. Your generous donations help programs like camp, child care, education, leadership and more.
Improving our community's health and overall well being
The Y is where the community thrives. Across Hancock County, the Y is where people of all ages come together to laugh, learn, exercise and build their sense of community. Programs like The Diabetes Prevention Program & Healthy Kids Day are helped thanks to your generous donations.
Giving back and providing support to our neighbors
We know that when we work together, we move individuals, families and communities forward. The Y responds to society’s most pressing needs by developing innovative, community-based solutions to help those in need to reach their full potential.
Ways To Give
The Annual Campaign ensures that everyone has equal access to the resources and tools they need to thrive.
In Hancock County, YMCA wellness facilities, camps, and childcare centers strive to empower youth, build healthier families and foster inclusive communities. These programs are driven by our mission of serving Findlay and its surrounding area as a cause-driven organization for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. By giving a donation to this campaign, you join a group of people dedicated to the success and well-being of our community.
Programs like Feed-A-Child, Y On The Fly, subsidized childcare, and membership scholarships exist because of your support.
The Heritage Society is composed of individuals who have made an outright gift or notified the Y that they have provided for a future planned gift, whether large or small, to the Y's endowment fund. A commitment to our Heritage Society membership is the strongest statement of support that a friend of the Y can make.
