Why give to the Y

When you give to the Y, you make Cheyenne stronger. As a leading nonprofit for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y uses your gift to nurture children, improve community health and well-being, and support those in need, right in your own neighborhood.  Your support enables us to offer a wide range of programs that help children learn and grow, teach young people to lead, bring families closer together and encourage individual health and well being.


Changing Lives

Our mission in greater Cheyenne is all about changing lives for the better in three ways:

  • Youth Development – providing a safe haven while supporting educational readiness and success

  • Healthy Living – promoting fitness, sports, nutrition and water safety, while preventing obesity and other health problems

  • Social Responsibility – finding innovative ways to help each individual reach toward his or her potential, giving everyone the opportunity to be healthy, confident, connected and secure

At the Y, no child, family or adult is turned away. We recognize that for communities to succeed, everyone must be given the chance to learn, grow, and thrive.

If everyone helps, together we will achieve so much more. That’s why we are asking you to support the Y with a gift to the Annual Fund. Because when our efforts are joined together, we can make the biggest difference.
