Capital Fundraising Campaigns
The Y conducts Capital Campaigns raise funds to support programs, facilities and expansions within the YMCA of the Suncoast community. Every donation helps strengthen our community and our commitment to being a positive impact for all ages.
West Pasco James P. Gills Family YMCA Expansion
With the growth of West Pasco and its neighboring communities, the James P. Gills Family YMCA is primed to begin renovations that will allow us to better serve and unite the expanding population, from families to seniors to youth, ensuring that all have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive for years to come.
We are reaching out to the community to gain support our capital efforts. This opportunity will improve our sports fields, add outdoor pickleball courts and provide for needed renovations of our healthy living center and teen center. This will allow us to expand programing for older adults, enhance chronic disease programming, increase our program capacity for youth sports and create a fun learning environment for teens.
You can help make this happen.
