Your gift makes a difference for children and families in our community.

Since 1994, everything we do here at Sherman Lake YMCA is focused on three main ingredients – ACHIEVEMENT, BELONGING and RELATIONSHIPS. This happens through making new friends, positive role models, trying new things, setting goals, physical activities, and the Y’s four core values of HCRR – Honesty, Caring, Respect and Responsibility.


Sherman Lake YMCA Annual Campaign

It’s our belief that no one should be denied participation in our programs due to their inability to pay. In 2018, we expect to help more than 5,000 people, mostly youth, through the generous support of people like you. When you give to Sherman Lake YMCA, you give experiences that change lives.
