When you give to the Y, you’re doing your part to strengthen our community—and a strong community is good for everyone. Whether you’re helping a child in need attend summer camp, giving someone the assistance they need to make a healthy change in their life, or contributing to the construction of a new Y facility, your gift will let us continue to affect positive change in our region.

Did you know that no one is ever turned away from the Y due to inability to pay? This special promise means that every child and family will have an opportunity to participate in the Y regardless of their household or personal income. This remarkable commitment by the Y is made possible by the generous contributions of our members and friends who, like you, believe in the Y’s ability to help strengthen the lives of kids and families in our community. The first Y in the United States opened on December 29, 1851, in Boston, Massachusetts. Since its inception, the Y has offered physical, educational and spiritual opportunities for both children and adults.


As the leading nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening communities, the Y relies on the support of neighbors like you to enable us to fulfill our commitments. Contributions can be recurring or one-time, and made online, in-person at the Welcome Center of your nearby branch, or through an employer match program. Cash, check, and bank/credit card drafts are accepted. Interested in being a program or one-time event Sponsor or Partner? Contact the Branch Director at a branch near you.

Checks should be made payable to Berkshire Family YMCA and mailed to: Berkshire Family YMCA, 292 North St., Pittsfield MA 01201 (Please indicate where you would like your gift to be applied.)
