The Milwaukee Y’s vision is a healthier, stronger and safer Milwaukee where families of all incomes and backgrounds truly thrive. The Y is more than just a gym, more than just a camp, more than just a place to learn to swim.  For 156 years, we have been steadfast in our commitment to fostering healthy families.  And today, that commitment is more focused and relevant than ever.

Through our Make it Count, Milwaukee! initiative we are bringing people together from across our community who share our vision.  With your support and in partnership with like-minded organizations, our goal is that together we reach more of our neighbors with the Y’s values-based, life-enriching programming – not just in our centers, but directly in the neighborhoods we serve.

Your generosity and support can be a solution to combat preventable and chronic disease;  can help more kids get the right start to their education; can combat summer learning loss through the joy that is summer day camp; and can break down barriers to the lifesaving and life affirming skill that is swim.  It is for these reasons and more that we hope you will support us.
