YMCA BuildingThe YMCA of McDonough County


Welcome to the Y

The YMCA OF MCDONOUGH COUNTY is an inclusive organization of men, women and children joined together by a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility.  

The YMCA OF MCDONOUGH COUNTY has an amazing opportunity to enrich the lives of children, families and individuals through programs that build spirit, mind and body. Our YMCA offers a diverse and unique array of programs for people of all ages including child care, summer camps, wellness, youth sports, aquatics and before and after school programs just to name a few.

At the YMCA OF MCDONOUGH COUNTY, we pride ourselves on ensuring that programs and membership is affordable for ALL. We accomplish this goal through the Annual Campaign. Each year contributions made to the Annual Campaign go directly to provide program support and financial assistance for low income individuals and families. 


We know that lasting personal and social change comes about when we all work together. That’s why, at the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. 


The Y is a nonprofit like no other. That’s because in 10,000 neighborhoods across the nation, we have the presence and partnerships to not just promise, but deliver, positive change.
