Support the Schlessman Y


Y members get benefits, but Y donors give back to make our community better.

Every year, the YMCA Annual Campaign goes where membership dues don’t. It powers critical programs and activities that keep kids  safe, people healthy and families strong.

See why your gift to the Annual Campaign is so important right here in University Hills.

You nurture kids. You give them summer day camp, sports, and before & after school care. They get safe places to learn, play, and thrive. Last year alone the Schlessman Y awarded more than $206,000 to ensure all kids in our community had a safe place to go when not in school.

You save lives. You give individuals swim lessons and health and wellness programs like Parkinson’s classes and Diabetes Prevention classes. People get support and opportunities to fight disease and live healthy. 

You keep seniors young. You give older adults longevity and healthy aging. They get fitness programs that strengthen their bodies and activities that keep their minds sharp.

You help others. You give people with health or physical challenges moral support and specialized instruction. They get the strength to rebuild their health.

You support families. You give scholarships and financial aid that make the Y possible. Last year, the Denver YMCA awarded more than $218,000 in financial aid to ensure every individual had access programs to live healthy. 

Become a donor today and help the Y do so much more.
