Support the Y's Igniting a Healthy Legacy Campaign
Our goal for the future is to assure all resources are used in the most efficient way to support our communities and our mission.
These projects and initiatives to improve the infrastructure of our association are paramount to our continued success in supporting the families of the Iowa Great Lakes and Camp Foster community.
Our desire is to be a fully sustainable organization. Our vision for a healthy financial future is to become debt free and work to grow our endowment. With no debt and an endowment for organizational support, the YMCA of the Okobojis will be able to reinvest in our organization though facility updates, programs and staffing expansions to meet the needs of our evolving communities.
