The Spencer Y is a leading nonprofit organization committed to strengthening our community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Our mission is to strengthen our community by improving the quality of life and inspiring individuals and families to develop their fullest potential in spirit, mind and body.
With the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility as our guide, we believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. That's why 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.
At the Y, we welcome everyone. When you join the Y, you belong to a community of men, women and children who strive every day to be healthy, confident, connected and secure. When you give to the Y, you continue to strengthen our community and move us all forward by providing financial assistance for people who need us the most. When you volunteer at the Y, you take an active role in making a meaningful, enduring impact right in your own community. When you advocate for the Y, you join a diverse movement committed to supporting and serving our community through promoting youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
The Spencer Y has a presence throughout the community providing child care, before/after school programs, health and fitness activities and initiatives to engage adults with youth for positive experiences. We partner with more than 20 other community organizations to help children and adults live healthier and become more active.
YMCA funding is generated from membership and program fees, individual and corporate donors, foundations and grants, and the United Way of Spencer. Our annual Strong Community Campaign raises money for financial assistance to ensure that no one is turned away for lack of funds in an atmosphere of inclusion and support.
The Spencer Y is a nonprofit organization governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. The YMCA Board of Directors set policies for the Association. Our Endowment Committee’s responsibility is to support the annual operating needs of the Spencer Family YMCA and to preserve the future purchasing power of the assets by achieving capital appreciation and growth of income.
