Giving back is so much more than just giving money. Your time, thought leadership and career expertise are all examples of giving back and can have tremendous impact on an organization’s work. More so, choosing to give back to your community yields benefits for you!
Consider the following benefits when you choose to give — whether in time or in contributed dollars.
When you give to the Y, you get …
1. A rush of endorphins!
It’s a proven fact that acts of altruism, like donating, give you that feel-good feeling!
2. A chance to make friends and connect with people that are equally committed to change.
There’s something magical about volunteering with like-minded individuals and developing a friendship around building a stronger community.
3. A tax break!
The Y is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit, so this means that your charitable donations are 100% tax deductible!
4. A chance to help write the future for your community.
Across Metro Atlanta, there are children of all backgrounds in need of support. With your help, the Y champions communities where everyone belongs. Every moment spent giving back to the Y is an investment in the future of your community.
Communities throughout Metro Atlanta are growing and changing in ways that require “all hands on deck.” The YMCA relies on volunteers and donors — like you — to provide life-changing programs that address the unmet needs of Metro Atlanta children, families and individuals. Whether you donate your time, money, reusable items, career expertise or services, you are making a positive impact through the YMCA.
