    The Foglia YMCA is a non-profit mission driven organization focused on inclusion. We want to ensure that community members and families are able to access our facility and essential programming, regardless of their ability to pay. We live that value by providing over $3,000,000 in Financial Assistance since our inception in 2000 to support our neighbors in need.
    In 2018, the Foglia YMCA was able to provide Financial Assistance to ensure no one was turned away from our center.  More than 200 families were able to access the Y because of our Financial Assistance program.  The impact below is because of generous support from our community. 
    • 789 children experienced enriching youth sports programs in a fun, team building environment
    • 1,360 children have been educated in water/swim safety through aquatics programs at the Foglia YMCA
    • 374 children and teens had the opportunity to participate in our Before & After school programs
