Annual Campaign

As a 4-star Charity Navigator charity, the Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA raises funds through our annual campaign to provide financial assistance to those who might not otherwise be able to afford the cost of membership and programs.


The Tampa YMCA relies on the generosity of donors to keeps its programs effective and affordable as well as to create new programs in response to community-identified needs. The Tampa YMCA is the largest provider of family health, youth sports, summer camp, and licensed child care in Hillsborough County. Many of these programs would not be possible were it not for the contributions from supporters like you.


In 2014, the Tampa YMCA provided $8,302,344.49 in financial assistance and subsidies to 46,518 children, teens and adults so they could enjoy memberships at their local Y branches and participate in a myriad of sports, wellness, and other activities.


When a Tampa YMCA volunteer calls you, please consider making a financial donation or pledge to support the YMCA’s important work strengthening communities throughout Hillsborough and East Pasco counties. If you would like to volunteer with or contribute to the 2017 Annual Campaign, please email Lisa.Bricker@tampaymca.org or call 813.224.9622, Ext. 1272.
