Rye YMCA Launches Capital Campaign for Expansion Projects

The Rye YMCA has announced the launch of Growing Stronger Together, a capital campaign to raise $1.2 million of a $1.6 million expansion.

“Opening a second facility will create unprecedented opportunities for community health, wellness and social connections,” remarked Rye Y Executive Director Gregg Howells. “And our new Early Learning Center for toddlers and preschoolers will give working parents a safe, reliable and affordable option for critically-needed full-day child care. We’re very excited about both of these linked projects.”

To date, the Y has raised nearly $900,000 in pledges from its Board of Directors, Trustees and community members. “We’re so grateful for the generous support we’ve received so far”, stated campaign chair Caroline Scully. “We invite others to invest in this new chapter for the Rye Y, at whatever level they can.”

One way to support The Studios at the Rye YMCA and the Early Learning Center is to purchase a personalized tile, which will be displayed on a donor wall in the new building.
