Together we can
build a better us

The Y. For a better us.

Give to the Y

Every day, the Y gives our community the support it needs to learn, grow and thrive. From advocacy to food security, disease prevention to athletics, football to dance classes, everything we do helps strengthen our neighborhood and the people who live here.

But keeping Metropolitan Detroit great is a full-time job. Every day, our community faces new challenges that create a greater need for the work we do. And we need your help to do it. Your gift can help Metropolitan Detroit and everyone in it shine.

For a better you. For a better community. For a better country.

The Y. For a better us.
