Our Community Spoke. We Listened.
In 2013 and 2015, the Siskiyou Family YMCA conducted a community needs assessment to learn how we can improve our services. Member surveys indicated a significant interest in expanding our facilities, for growth, at the Y. From Solar Power, to improved locker rooms and conference space, this Capital Campaign will help the Siskiyou Family YMCA take the next step forward in our service to the community. Please join us as we expand our facility, for the future of our kids, our families and those who need us most.
We are going solar.
Installation of an on-site solar array will offer the Siskiyou Family YMCA significant long term savings. With this investment, the Siskiyou YMCA will operate more efficiently, allowing for increased funds to go towards programs and services that will benefit members and the community.
New locker rooms.
The new 5,700 square foot wing will feature brand new, state of the art locker rooms. Our new locker rooms will feature areas for changing that are private and separate from bathroom and shower space, this way members of all ages will feel like the Y is a home away from home.
A new aerobics room.
- The new 5,700 square foot wing will also feature a brand new aerobics room. This new space will support fitness and program offerings while creating more space in our current weight room areas.
Additional convening space.
When the the new locker rooms are complete, our current locker rooms will be transformed into a conference room that can accommodate meetings and gatherings. Many outside groups use our Y as a convening area each year. From CPR/First Aid classes to birthday parties, to local committee planning meetings, our Y is a central gathering point in the community.
Our Capital Campaign is 90% funded.
We need your help.
By completing a Campaign Giving Card, you will help the Siskiyou YMCA raise the last 10% needed to install a solar-array, and add on a 5,700 square foot addition. The addition will featuring new, state of the art locker room facilities, and a new aerobics room. With funds raised we will also renovate our current locker room into a professional convening area and we will expand the cardio and weight room square footage as well.
We need you.
