For a Better Us
For a Better Us

At the Y, no one is turned away because

of an inability to pay.

That's our promise to the community, and our Y Annual Campaign makes it possible.


Your Dollars Create Big Change
While a variety of fundraisers help us subsidize costs, the Y Annual Campaign has the greatest impact on the largest number of individuals. Last year, we gave over 65,000 people direct financial assistance. Thanks to generous donors who support the Y Annual Campaign, we’re able to provide cutting-edge recreational, educational and fitness opportunities to those who might not otherwise have access. We award financial assistance based on annual income and household size. Read our Community Impact Report to learn more.

$1,000 ($83/month) can help a family afford Y preschool, preparing their child for kindergarten and sparking a love of learning.
$600 ($50/month) can help a child gain skills and confidence at the Y's week-long resident summer camp in sunny California.
$350 ($29/month) will give an active older adult the opportunity to stay happier and healthier together with a year-long Y membership.
$100 ($8/month) will provide a child life saving water safety skills through eight weeks of swim lessons.

Investing in Your Community’s Future
Providing youth with a nurturing environment benefits everyone. By introducing kids to experiences that help them grow into successful adults, we make Southern Nevada a better place to live. For all of us.

Are you ready to help us build strong kids, strong families and strong communities? MAKE YOUR TAX-DEDUCTIBLE GIFT TODAY.

Priceless Rewards
When you think of the Y, do images of pools, basketball courts and colorful classrooms filled with after-school activities come to mind? There’s more than meets the eye. We teach character values and expose children to rewarding activities. You simply can’t put a price on strengthening a child’s character.

On behalf of the countless youth and families who will be touched by your generosity, thank you.

Give to the Y


"We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give." Sir Winston Churchill was on to something, but what if you could make your giving live on forever? The Heritage Club makes it possible.


The Heritage Club lets individuals who share the Y’s ideals and traditions ensure this valued heritage continues for future generations. It encourages thoughtful gifts as a primary means of building an endowment capable of providing lasting support for the Y's mission. We recognize members whose leadership, service and devotion to the Y creates this heritage.

Why make an endowment gift to the Heritage Club?

  • It's the greatest statement of support you can make to the Y.

  • Your participation becomes the catalyst for more goodwill than you could ever achieve alone.

  • In a world of change, the Y endures. What began in 1844 in London and 1944 in Southern Nevada has a rich tradition with more relevance than ever before.

  • The Y is community based, professionally managed and meets changing conditions.

  • Each day, the Y promotes the healthy development of families and emphasizes the core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

You can help perpetuate the important work of the Y while securing your family’s future through your gift’s financial benefits. It’s an opportunity to do something meaningful for others in your lifetime.

What is planned giving?
Planned giving integrates your charitable gift into your overall financial, tax and estate planning objectives. It maximizes benefits to you as a donor, and to the YMCA of Southern Nevada. You might consider the following options:

  • A gift through your will
    Include the Y in your will or living trust. A fixed amount, asset or percentage of your estate can be set aside as bequests and qualify for estate deductions.

  • A gift through a charitable trust or annuity
    Provide life income for yourself and/or others. With all or a portion of your gift eventually directed to the Y, you could receive a charitable deduction. 

How can I learn more?
For more information about planned giving, please contact your tax adviser. To learn more about the Heritage Club or become a member, contact Chuck Searle, development director, at 702-877-7223.

Fun Fact: The Bill & Lillie Heinrich YMCA was rededicated in 2007 following a transformation funded by an $8.6 million capital campaign, the largest in YMCA of Southern Nevada history.

Give to the Y


At the Y, no one is turned away due to an inability to pay. Financial assistance is made available through our Y Annual Campaign, United Way funding and grants from generous donors. Families and individuals can use assistance for membership, camp, youth programs, sports, swim lessons and dozens of other activities that help them reach their potential. In 2017, the Y gave 65,888 community members direct financial assistance and program subsidies totaling nearly $2 million dollars.

Donor Recognition Banners

Your gift to our Y Annual Campaign ensures the Y remains a vibrant community resource where no one is turned away. We will recognize your gift with a banner! The thousands of individuals who visit the Y will know you care about community.

This is a sampling of the banners that hang in our facilities. We'll design yours based on your giving level.

If you give $1,000 - $4,999, your banner will be 48" x 92".
If you give $5,000 - $9,999, your banner will be 96" x 92".
If you give $10,000+, your banner will be 144" x 92".
