Partner with Youth

NO CHILD IN NEED SHALL BE TURNED AWAY…..EVER!
That’s what Partner With Youth is all about. It befriends needy children in the Winona area with everything from memberships, to camps to a variety of other programs. No child is ever turned away due to financial need.

Each year the YMCA receives numerous requests to provide membership, campership, and program scholarships to boys and girls who face financial hardship. These requests come from the Social Services Department, school officials and counselors, churches, and special referrals. The Partner With Youth program makes it possible for these children to enjoy the benefits of the Y through the generosity and concern of individuals and businesses in the Winona area.

WHERE DOES MY CONTRIBUTION GO?
You can definitely be assured that the money will be used for the Partner With Youth Program.Last year, over $75,000 in full and partial scholarships were given to needy children and families.Your donation will send a child to camp, provide for youth programs, or go towards a Y membership. You can designate a specific area, if you like.

Names are referred to us by a number of agencies including Social Services, our school systems, clergy, law enforcement agencies, etc. We receive calls regularly from these agencies asking for help. Assistance is given, even though we do not have the money to support this without a direct appeal to people like you

HOW SHOULD PAYMENT BE MADE TO THE Y?
Payment by check is most convenient. The Y will, however, bill individuals or corporations when requested.
