Grand Lake Family YMCA

Grove, OK

Together Campaign Expansion Project

TOGETHER we can ensure children, families, adults and seniors have a place to pursue their healthy living journey.

Your Y has served the Grand Lake community for over 17 Years. During this time we have grown from a storefront YMCA to a Y that serves youth, families, adults and seniors throughout the community. Our history is rich in life changing services that could not have been possible without volunteers and donors wanting to enhance their community nearly 20 years ago.

Today we reach another opportunity. Your Y has exceeded all expectations and we have grown our services to meet the ever changing needs of the community. Our Grand Lake YMCA is an amazing place in need of enhancements.

After careful planning and being sensitive to the needs of all our neighbors the board of directors has decided to launch the Together Capital Campaign. This campaign was designed to create space and opportunity to better serve our community for the next 20 years. Once completed our Y will allow us to enhance our ability to serve through Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility.

Our fundraising goal is $800,000.

Gifts will specifically allocated for the project, which includes our three major areas of impact and accommodations for our community:

  • Youth Development: Child watch and outdoor green space
  • Social Responsibility: Social gathering area
  • Healthy Living: Multi-use gymnasium and additional parking
