Dear Y members,

We’re in this Together

Thank you for working with us to create a rich history that demonstrates how we come together and serve those who need us the most.  Let us tell the story of the meaningful ways in which we respond.  We have the opportunity, right now, to decide what the future looks like.  We want a future of generosity, of social justice, and equal access to critical resources.  We are learning a lot in real time, and we’re adapting.

Most importantly, this is not forever.  We’re standing by you during this difficult time and ask that you stand by us as well.  There’s a bright future ahead, but the only way we get there is together.                                                         

Let that be the story that is remembered.

Help Us by Keeping an Active Membership

As a nonprofit, we’re working hard to serve during this time.  Your generous support provides a foundation for our work.   We need all hands-on deck.  Members who continue to pay their monthly membership dues are our Sustaining Members, because you are helping us be resilient during this chaotic time.  Closing our facilities has caused a serious loss of revenue for our organization. 

Our need for support is greater than ever.

We ask that you continue to pay your membership fee during this time of need.

We invite you to support us and the community.

-We are asking you to support us in service of our children and the children of healthcare workers and first responders.

-We are asking that you support our ability to offer our facility as a shelter for disaster relief.

-We are asking that you support our staff working to ready our facility for your return and working with our partners to       serve  the community’s critical needs as they arise.

In the short run, we know that our Y will be called upon even more to help ensure our health care employees, first responders and critical workers have what they need to keep our communities healthy and safe.

When our community returns to normal, we need to ensure the Y has sufficient funding to re-open our facility and programs to meet the needs of everyone we serve.  

We plan to restore full operations at our Y as soon as we are able.  We will continue to make day-to-day decisions as we receive updates from Governor Evers, Health Departments, the YMCA of the USA, and the CDC.  Please visit our YMCA website at for updated information and online work out options.  

If we are unable to welcome you back on March 30th due to government mandates, then from that date forward, for however long we are unable to open our doors, we will send you a donation letter for tax purposes to reflect your membership fees during the closure.  Regarding programs and classes, we will resume the Spring 1 Session upon reopening. 

If you prefer to put your membership on hold until operations are restored, please contact us at and we will do that for you.  Please note, any member that would like to put their membership on hold please inform us per the dates listed below-

– If your draft date is between April 1-8, then we need to know by March 27th

– If your draft date is between April 9-16, then we need to know by April 3rd

– If your draft date is between April 17-24, then we need to know by April 11th

– If your draft date is between April 25-30, then we need to know by April 18th

Please have the primary member email us at with the request.

Thank you for your support as we work diligently to ensure the health and safety of our community.

Stay Healthy,

Cindy Altergott
