ANNUAL APPEAL 2021

HOME / ANNUAL APPEAL 2021

MOVING FORWARD. TOGETHER.

The Ridgewood YMCA’s strength is the foundation of the communities we serve, and we have been here for nearly 120 years. We are proud of our diverse community, and we are passionate about being a force for good.

Every year, our annual appeal helps to provide essential services and programs for thousands of our friends and neighbors. And in 2021, we created even more programming to help our community thrive through new challenges brought on by the COVID 19 pandemic. There is finally light at the end of the tunnel, and while we won’t stop providing this critical support, NOW is the time for us to Move Forward-stronger, healthier, safer, TOGETHER.

Our programs improve community health and save lives. We develop the next generation of learners and support achievement for all. This work has a cost, and we can’t do it without you. Be a part of positive change and help the Y continue building brighter futures for us all.
