Every day, we take on the challenges that will shape our community's future.

Challenges like quality, affordable childcare; healthy, fun, substance-free activities for youth and teens; and year-round activities to help an aging population stay healthy, active, and connected to their community.

Annual Campaign

As one of the Monadnock region’s largest and oldest charitable organizations, the Keene Family YMCA raises funds year-round through its Annual Campaign. These funds support our Membership for All program which provides financial assistance to those in need, helping ensure that our programs and services, like quality childcare, life-saving swim lessons, and healthy aging activities are accessible to everyone in our community.

In 2022, the Keene Family YMCA awarded more than $178,000 in financial assistance and free services.

This would not have been possible without the generous support of our donors.

The Need

Our Membership for All program is currently seeing an elevated need in our community, and we’re projecting that the need will be even greater in 2023. As the need for financial assistance rises, the gap between the funds raised and the funds awarded widens. More youth need a place to go after school or during school breaks. More families need childcare or afterschool services. And more of our community members yearn for a place that provides a sense of belonging. The Keene Family YMCA is uniquely positioned to effectively respond to these community needs.

The Opportunity

We are proud to meet the changing and growing needs of our community. Together we can eliminate the need gap and emerge as a stronger and more vital organization. Join us and discover what a gift it is to give.

The Heritage Society

recognizes individuals and families making a bequest or planned gift to the Y through their estates. Their names appear on a Giving Tree, centrally located near the Y’s main lobby.

It's all about the details

We encourage you to discuss your planned or estate giving options with your legal and/or financial advisors. It is helpful as well to discuss your giving plans with Y staff so that language can be drafted for use in any necessary legal documents. This way, you can be sure that the Y is able to utilize your gift as you intended. Donors and advisors are welcome to reach out to the Y’s Development Director, Mick Blume at or 603.283.5256.
