GREENVILLE, S.C. – YMCA of Greenville today announced its 2024 Annual Campaign goal of $1.44 million to help improve the lives of thousands of people across Greenville County through financial assistance for programs and services, creating a lasting impact in the Y’s focus areas of youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.

The funds raised will go towards providing financial assistance so that anyone who wants to participate in the Y’s programs and services is able to, regardless of their ability to pay. This includes providing children, adults and families scholarships for wellness memberships, youth sports programs, swim lessons, the SC Youth in Government program, afterschool care and summer day camps, as well as funding the Y’s food delivery program for those experiencing food insecurity across Greenville County.

Over the past 14 years, the YMCA of Greenville has raised more than $13 million for the annual campaign, putting those funds back into helping people thrive.

“Every dollar donated to the YMCA of Greenville Annual Campaign has a lasting impact on the people right here in our community,” says Scot Baddley, president, and CEO of the YMCA of Greenville. “We look forward to the impact we will make this year and the positive change on the lives of so many of our neighbors.”

“This year’s annual campaign theme is ‘You are Y,’ says Diana Watson, senior vice president and chief philanthropy officer of the YMCA of Greenville. “YOU make it possible for the YMCA of Greenville to create opportunities and access for all. With your support, we get to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive.”
