When you give to Y-Guides, you make our community better through life-changing experiences for dads and kids.
More than ever, families need Y programs to help stay connected. Y-Guides gives kids and dads the opportunity to spend quality time together and strengthen their relationship. Plus they become part of a community committed to teaching kids critical life skills and the importance of serving others. Everyone is welcome in Y-Guides. Through the generosity of our donors, we provide scholarship assistance so that families in need can participate.
A donation of $500 helps cover the dues/registration fees for a father and child to participate as well as allows them to attend two weekends of Longhouse where they create lasting memories. We also support Resident Camp and Day Camp at YMCA Camp Thunderbird.
Our goal is for every tribe to raise $500. When your tribe reaches their goal, each tribe member earns a patch for that year, 100 points per dad toward your tribe award and recognition at a Longhouse ceremony.
Our Association fundraising goal for YGuides in 2019 is $20,000. To reach this goal we rely on your support! Please donate online and encourage your family and friends to Join this Fundrasing Team so they can help us promote the Y-Guides cause to the entire community!
Each year as one of our service projects, Y-Guides raises funds for the YMCA of Greater Charlotte Community Outreach Campaign.
When you join this campaign you join the YMCA of Greater Charlotte in its role responding to the critical needs of the communities we serve. These funds help ensure that Y-Guides membership and events are available to all families in our community.
