Why Give?

We are proud to serve Clark, Fanwood and Scotch Plains. Charitable giving to the Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA allows us to have a greater impact on our community.

Today, we need your help more than ever to carry out our mission: to nurture the potential and well-being of our kids, to continue to promote healthy living among all, and to strengthen a sense of caring and social responsibility across our community.

Anyone who comes through our doors finds the support they need to learn, grow and thrive. At the Y, families become closer, children grow and blossom, seniors discover new energy, and those with disabilities find new abilities and new hope.
