The Mount Desert Island YMCA's Annual Fund supports the Y mission and promise that no one will be turned away because they cannot afford to pay for YMCA services. Our annual fund campaign enables families to thrive with the support of Y-childcare for the working parent; supports young people that need a safe and supportive environment to come to after school; engages active older adults who want to maintain an active lifestyle through our low-impact fitness and aquatics exercise classes; and enables families wanting to provide an opportunity for their children to compete statewide in our competitive rhythmic gymnastics and swim team programs.


Since 1900 the Y has been a cornerstone for strengthening and enhancing the lives of island families through its programs and services.  We are here to provide growth in spirit, mind and body for all. Along with ensuring that all can participate, your donation supports essential day to day operations so that we are able to keep our facility open seven days a week on a year round basis. 


It has been through the generosity of individuals like you that have enabled the YMCA to make a difference in the lives of so many for the past 109 years.  Your support enables us to continue to help members of the community who need it most and to keep Y programs affordable to everyone.


We need your help... it's that simple.


Last year the MDI YMCA gave out thousands of dollars in scholarships that enabled island residents, young and old, to join the Y or participate in programs they would not otherwise have been able to afford.
