Madison Area YMCA

The Madison Area YMCA staff and volunteers work in an ongoing partnership to build a healthier, stronger community for children and adults of all ages.

Through our philanthropic, early childhood education, wellness and youth development programs, we build community and work to assure that Y programs and services are available to everyone regardless of their economic circumstances.

We operate with three core priorities:

  • Youth Development, providing care and education for infants and preschoolers;  and development for school-age children and teens through sports, athletics and leadership programs.
  • Healthy Living, providing classes and programs to promote health and overall wellbeing.
  • Social Responsibility, engaging the community in activities such as child protection education and philanthropic fundraising to assure broad access to Y programs and services.

As a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable organization, the Y operates with a volunteer Board of Directors that, with the president & CEO, provides overall leadership and carries the fiduciary responsibility of the organization.
