Did you know that this year one in six people in Eau Claire will belong to the Eau Claire YMCA or participate in a YMCA program? Since 1881, we have been committed to meeting the health and wellness needs of our community. Those needs have changed over the years, and the Y is constantly evolving to make sure we are positioned to meet the needs of today and tomorrow. Today the Eau Claire YMCA is stronger than it has been in years. That is great news because a strong YMCA equals a strong community.
As a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, we rely on donations by current and past Y members, business owners, and caring people in our community to keep the Y healthy and growing. Please help us help kids and families right here in our community by making a donation to the Y. It is one of the best investments in our community – and in the future of our children – that you can make!
The Eau Claire YMCA has a rich heritage of service, with third and fourth generations of many families being served by it. As we move through our second century of service, we hope that those of you who care about the Y will help to ensure its success in the future and extend the influence of your lives, your values, and your ideals by naming the Eau Claire YMCA in your estate plan. To learn more how a planned gift can support the Y for years to come, please contact Suzie Slota, Director of Development, at
