Giving to the Y

The Skaneateles Y Annual Community Support Campaign

As a charitable, mission-driven organization, the Skaneateles YMCA & Community Center strives to ensure that its programs and services are accessible to all who wish to participate. Our scholarship program provides financial assistance to those individuals and  families who are not able to afford memberships or programs. Through our Annual Support Campaign, contributions are collected to help us provide program support and financial assistance to individuals and families in need.
