Annual Campaign

Celebrating 75 Years in the Community

When we reflect upon our many years of human service to the community, we can't help by remember our modest beginnings in 1944 at Spring Lake Park as a day camp fro the children of World War II servicemen and women. 

Our members and friends call us THEIR Y. We call them OUR greatest resource—the thousands of people who work alongside us and support our work to help our neighbors learn, grow and thrive.

What if we could harness all of that power to make an even greater difference on a bigger scale?

With programs from A to Z—like athletics to advocacy, dance classes to disease prevention, volleyball to volunteerism—we don’t just strengthen individuals, we strengthen our community.

With Your Help…

The Y has grown into a 100,000 square foot Community Center that is second to none with two gyms, two 25 yd. pools, a State-of-th-Art Performing Arts Center and Lakehouse. 

Yet there is so much more to do.

Bergen County faces new challenges that create a greater need for the work we do. Fortunately, where some see obstacles, we see opportunities for our members, volunteers, staff, and generous donors like you to make a difference. No other organization can impact as many people as powerfully as we do every day.

How the Wyckoff Y Gives:

  • 20,000 people from all ages, backgrounds and incomes are touched by our Y every year.
  • $1 Million is provided in financial assistance and subsidy to those in need. 
  • 1,800 youth make friends and achieve goals in Day Camp.
  • 100 plus families directly benefit from Wyckoff Y Cares.
  • $375,000 was raised exclusively through our 2017 Y Events.
  • 110 children and young adults with special needs attend our Shining Star and 21+ Program.
  • 180 children from Paterson’s Oasis join Camp Wydaca all summer long.
  • 25 school locations ensure that 900 youth have a safe place to go before and after school.
  • 2,000 kids learn lifesaving skills in our pools and lake.
  • 500 volunteers help “make it happen.”

When you donate to the Wyckoff Family YMCA, you make our community better and the “us” who live in it stronger. Every dollar you give to the Y’s Annual Campaign can change the life of a child, teen or a family in need. No one is ever turned away. Your kindness can offer the chance of a lifetime to the people who need it most in every corner of our area.

The Y. So Much More™

YOUTH DEVELOPMENT

All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, under the guidance of caring adults who believe in their potential. We see every interaction with young people as an opportunity for learning and development - all grounded in the Y's core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. 

HEALTHY LIVING

We help people and families build and maintain healthy habits for spirit, mind, and body in their everyday lives. By helping kids, adults, families, and seniors from all walks of life improve their health and well-being, we build a stronger community. 

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

With our donors open to all, we bring together people from all backgrounds, to support those in need. We take on the most urgent needs in our community and inspire a spirit of service in return. Our members, volunteers, supporters, and staff demonstrate the power of what we can achieve by giving back together 


Y Story:

THE Y INVESTED IN ME…

I’m a single mother of four, with three of my kids enrolled in the Y’s Child Development Center. To say that there are challenges for me on any given day is an understatement. But the Y staff is totally supportive and tireless in its efforts to work with me day in, and day out.

Without the Y’s financial assistance, my kids could not continue to take part in the rich social and educational offerings at the Y. I am so thankful this aid is available. The Y invested in my kids and in me, and I am forever thankful they did.
