Together We Can Build a Better Future

The Jackson YMCA, which has been serving the community since 1896, brings men, women and children of all ages, and from all walks of life. Nearly 1,000 people come through our doors each day, united by the shared passion to improve the health and well-being of themselves and our community. When you Give back and support the Y, YOU play an important role in strengthening the foundation of our community.

We are raising $25 million for a new YMCA facility in downtown Jackson – and we need the financial support from everyone in our community. We are more than halfway to our goal at $14.1 million in pledges. The Jackson YMCA is a 501c3 nonprofit charitable organization. Your donations to the capital campaign may be tax deductible, check with your tax professional.


With your help we can:

  • Provide access to a wide range of health and wellness services for individuals of all ages, including our growing senior population.
  • Address increasing downtown child care needs through licensed after-school care and other programming.
  • Enable those with limited mobility to easily access our facility, equipment and programs.
  • Support and inspire more downtown economic development.

And so much More!

As the nation’s leading nonprofit for Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility, we will use your gift to make a meaningful, enduring impact – right in YOUR own Neighborhood.
