Give

The Knox County YMCA is a 501c3 charitable nonprofit organization whose mission is to utilize Christian principles to instill character development. We believe in the four core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, Responsibility and practice these values in our daily lives.  Financial Assistance keeps the Y available for kids and families who need us most.  We count on the generosity of our members and community to help people of all ages and from all walks of life be more healthy, confident, connected and secure.  When you give to the Y, your gift will have a meaningful, enduring impact right in your own neighborhood.
 
As part of our mission, no person is denied participation or services of the YMCA thanks to our generous donors. Each year, the YMCA conducts a sustaining fundraising campaign (Annual Support Campaign) in order to ensure that every person wishing to participate at the YMCA has opportunity to do so. Annually, the YMCA forgives approximately $50,000 in membership and program dollars which must be generated through private donors such as you.

Please consider giving to the YMCA to make an impact on youth and families. For more information on how you can make a tax deductible gift, please contact Adam Sampson at (309) 344-1324.

Our Success Stories

After six months of personal training sessions, one of our clients tripped and fell at church, causing her to need a knee replacement! After getting up from that fall, she told everyone that if that would have happened one year ago, she probably would have been really bad off, but since she had been working with a trainer she was stronger and able to recover from that fall with no problems! Personal training works!
