1866 Giving Society

Since 1866, the Y has been a community hub, a place for connection, a resource to help individuals overcome challenges, and a support system for families in need. As a charity, we strive to encourage people to be healthier – regardless of their ability to pay.

When you give through the Y, 100% of your gift will directly provide financial assistance to those who cannot otherwise afford our low membership and program fees. Your support ensures the Y delivers on its promise to truly be “for all.”

As our community’s needs grow, the compassionate support of our donors make it possible for our organization to exist and makes our community a great place to live.

The Saratoga Regional YMCA was founded in 1866 and has expanded and provided essential services to our community for over 150 years. The 1866 Society honors individuals and organizations that have made leadership investments of $2,500 or more to the Y each fiscal year in support of the Annual Campaign. Members of the 1866 Society are essential partners in fulfilling our mission.
