The YMCA Community Campaign

The Community Campaign is the YMCA of Greater Hartford’s annual fundraising drive. It is the primary effort of the Y to raise the important funding used to support financial assistance for members, children and families in our communities and to expand programming.

What it is

These funds help make it possible for children, families, seniors, neighbors and others to benefit from Y programs and memberships, regardless of their financial circumstances.
Give to Downtown Hartford YMCA

Why it Matters

Funds raised enable us: 
  • To subsidize many programs and increase affordability
  • To provide direct financial assistance for those who cannot afford program and membership fees
  • To expand existing programs, particularly in underserved communities; and
  • To provide start-up funds for community programs.

100 Percent of Donations Go Back to the Communities We Serve

How you can help

  • Make a one-time gift
  • Make a sustaining monthly gift
  • Round up your spare change

How does the Round Up Work?

Every time you make a purchase, your spare change will be rounded up and donated to the YMCA.  Visit a coffee shop and spend $3.60… $.40 will be rounded up.  Roundups are tallied until they reach $5. Once $5 is reached, the donation is triggered and your credit card or bank account is charged. This way, your bank statement doesn’t become overwhelmed with micro-charges.   This is a simple and easy way to create change for the YMCA!


Will I receive a tax deductible receipt for my contribution?

You will receive automatic monthly statements of your contributions to the email address connected to your account. At the end of the year, you may print a year-end receipt of your annual donations by logging in and visiting your Settings. Please consult your authorized legal counsel as to the deductibility of your contributions as the rules vary state by state. 

What if I would like to pause or set a limit on my contributions?

You can pause donations at any time by logging into your account and visiting your Donation Settings. You can also set a monthly limit. Roundup donations will halt once your contributions reach your monthly cap.
