You can help make a difference-Donate or Volunteer

The Mattoon Area Family YMCA is dedicated to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

For 30 years, we’ve been proud to help our neighbors learn, grow and thrive.  Every day, we take on challenges that will shape our community’s future.  Yet we’re called to do so much more.

Fortunately, where some see obstacles, we see opportunities for our members, our volunteers, out friends, and our staff to make a difference.  You too

can make difference.

Together, we can build stronger individuals, stronger families and stronger communities.

Each day we hear some great stories from our members.  They tell us the impact the Mattoon Y has had on them.  Hear are a few of those stories:


We are always looking for great volunteers for:  coaches for youth sports, race day volunteers, special events at the Y, our annual May Merriment Benefit, Girls on the Run and STRIDE coaches, greeters and more.

You may also support the Y through a donation.  A donation allows us to provide programming for all ages and membership to all regardless of income.

How your donation makes a difference:

$20 covers a full day at summer camp or for a youth member to sign up for swim lessons

$50 covers two youth members registration in youth sports such as soccer, basketball or dodgeball

$100 covers a full week at our summer camp for a child.

$200 covers more than a full month of fees for our after school program for a child or a full year for one child to be a member at the Y.

All donations are welcome.  Together we are changing lives.
