What is the Annual Campaign?

The Annual Campaign is an annual sustaining fundraising campaign that provides scholarship dollars for people in need of Baytown Family YMCA programs. Every dollar raised is an investment in our community and our future.

How can I help?

We hope that you will become a community partner and will make this a principal investment each year for the future of our community. You can help make a difference in the lives of so many people! Your personal contribution will enable the Baytown Family YMCA to support and expand opportunities that ensure all individuals' participation in YMCA programs.

What are the different levels of giving and how do I decide how much to give?

Giving is an individual decision that should be prayerfully and collectively considered with the family's input. The amount of the gift would naturally come from this process. Some choose to give based on the cost of a program while others choose to give at certain levels. Every gift, no matter how small or large, is important.
