The Y.TM For a better us.TM


 Resized 2.3.14.jpg



It all starts with our community! Volunteers and donors make it possible for the Y to change lives. Please join us in supporting our neighbors by becoming a volunteer campaigner for our Annual Campaign.

NEW! This year we are introducing an online fundraising website to help you in your fundraising efforts. Create your own personal fundraising page and share it with your friends and family. Start a team, join a team, register as a campaigner, track your pledges and tell your Y story.


Team Captains: Recruit and coordinate teams of campaigners, support thier efforts and ensure the success of your team. Set team and personal fundraising goals.

Campaigner: Tell the Y story to 5 or more friends and family. Ask them to join you in changing a life by making a pledge.


Tips for a successful Campaign!

2. Understand why the Y is so much more

3. Signup for a training and then "log in"

4. Start a personal campaign web page

5. Check-in with your team captain weekly

6. Track your donations



The Decatur Family YMCA uses financial gifts to help individuals and families in need participate in programs such as: after school enrichment, tutoring, preschool enrichment, youth sports, summer camp and so much more.

Our members and friends call us THEIR Y. We call them OUR greatest resource—the hundreds of people who work alongside us and support our work to help our neighbors learn, grow and thrive.

With programs from A to Z—like athletics to advocacy, dance classes to disease prevention, volleyball to volunteerism—we don’t just strengthen individuals, we strengthen our community. Yet there is so much more to do.

Macon County faces new challenges that create a greater need for the work we do. Fortunately, where some see obstacles, we see opportunities for our members, volunteers, staff, and generous donors like you to make a difference. No other organization can impact as many people as powerfully as we do every day.

Every gift makes a difference.
Everyone has a role to play.
Together, we can achieve so much more.
