DONATION AND FACILITY USE REQUEST POLICY AND PROCEDURES
Please read carefully before submitting a request.
At the Y, strengthening community is our cause and we are dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected, and secure children, adults, families and communities. As a non-profit organization, the Y depends on generous support from individuals and businesses throughout the community to achieve its mission. Thanks to this generosity, the YMCA of Washington County provides over $66,000 annually in membership assistance and program scholarships. Additionally, we strive to support other organizations committed to similar goals which are performing community service in Washington County by making our resources or facilities available when possible. The extraordinarily large number of requests received each year means the Y is unable to meet all requests and so the following policies and procedures have been established in order to assist as many as possible.
The Y donates only to other 501(c) (3) non-profit organizations or organizations working to raise funds for a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization. The Y does not donate to individuals or groups raising money for individuals.
TYPES OF DONATIONS
The Y is unable to make cash contributions. The Y may contribute limited memberships and services, such as (1) month memberships, Y products, program services.
All donations made by the Y are intended for the sole benefit of the non-profit organization to or for which the donation was made. The resale or repurposing of any donation by the organization or the winner of such a donation is strictly prohibited without the prior approval of the Y and will nullify the donation.
