Our Cause Defines Us

The YMCA of Central Ohio is transforming lives. We know that lasting personal and social change only happens when we work together. That’s why we’ve been inviting people to join us in strengthening our communities for more than a century. We’re only getting started. This isn’t just an invitation to go to or give to the Y. It’s an invitation to become a dynamic part of our mission.

Because we can’t build a better ‘Us’ without you. And by ‘Us,’ we mean all of us. We need YOU to help build a strong, connected community of people from all walks of life, committed to bringing Central Ohio closer together. Together, we’re building a better Us.
