Investing in Our Community
As a leading nonprofit in the Cortland County community for more than 150 years, the Cortland YMCA has a track record of community involvement, youth programming, and giving back. As a charity, we work every day to address community needs and ensure that all are welcome.
Water Safety: As “America’s swim instructor,” the YMCA teaches children of all ages and from all backgrounds that water should be fun, not feared, if you know how to stay safe in and around water.
Community Wellness: With programs like Walk with Ease and Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring, we’re providing opportunities for members of our community to get healthier and achieve their overall wellness goals.
Membership for All: No one is turned away from a YMCA program or membership for an inability to pay full price. Thanks to the generosity of community members, we offer Membership for All, an income-based fee model available to anyone who qualifies.
Community Involvement: Working with other community businesses and organizations, we are an active part of the effort to create a better life for all of our neighbors, with events like the Community Baby Shower, the Run 4 All 5k and 1 Mile Walk, and having an ongoing role in the fight to end hunger in Cortland County.
