Y for All

Give to the YMCA’s Y for All fund! Every $1,500 that is given, a deserving family will receive the benefits of a generous person that is willing to give them the very best of what our YMCA has to offer. This fund focuses on providing families with quality facilities, activities, and programs. The package that is given to each family includes a family membership, sessions for youth sports, swim lessons, adult fitness classes, progressive gymnastic lessons, personal training sessions, and day camp. Whether you can give $5, $100, or $1,500 towards fund, you will be a part of giving a gift that can potentially change the life of a deserving family.

Welcome to the Defiance Area YMCA

The Defiance Area YMCA strengthens the foundations of our community through well-being and fitness, camps, family time, swim, sports and play, and other activities for people of all ages, incomes and abilities. We’re more than just a place to workout. At the Y, we help build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all with the core values of care, honesty, respect and responsibility at the heart of everything we do. With a commitment to nurturing youth development, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that every individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive.

Our Programs

We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. Because of the Y, more young people in neighborhoods around the nation are taking a greater interest in learning and making smarter life choices.

Donate Today

YMCA funding is generated from membership and program fees, individual and corporate donors, foundations and grants. The Annual Campaign raises money for financial assistance and three of our mission initiatives to ensure that no one is turned away for lack of funds in an atmosphere of inclusion and support. The expansion of local facilities is done through the YMCA Capital Development Campaign which contributes to the health and well-being of residents throughout the surrounding areas.
