Who we are
For 75 years, the Sanford-Springvale YMCA has been a leading nonprofit committed to strengthening community through our focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. More than 10,000 individuals made the Y an important part of improving their lives, through academic achievement, advocacy, child care, exercise, social programs and teen development.
But there is so much more we could be doing. Our community continues to grow, as do the needs of children, families and individuals – and we need to grow with them.

Thanks to many years of community support and generous gifts, we are excited to announce a grand opening of our expansion space in September 2017!

But we need your help to cross the finish line. Your support makes our new, expanded Y the very best it can be.


Join us Friday, June 23rd as we play to “Build A Better Us”.
