Every day, the Marshalltown YMCA-YWCA gives our community the support it needs to learn, grow and thrive. From disease prevention to summer camps, flag football to swim lessons, senior programming to child care, everything we do helps strengthen our neighborhood and the people who live here.
But keeping central Iowa great is a full-time job. Every day, our community faces new challenges that create a greater need for the work we do. And we need your help to do it. Your gift can help central Iowa and everyone in it shine.
For a better you. For a better community. The Y.™ For a better us.

Annual Campaign funds support urgent needs:
Improve Health for Everyone
Programs like LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA and the Y’s Diabetes Prevention Program address chronic disease and obesity. Y membership assistance reduces health inequities among people of diverse backgrounds.
Strengthen Families and Develop Leaders
Many older adults experience feelings of social isolation, but the Y is here to provide activities for the spirit, mind and body. Fit Kids Afterschool Programs at the Y and Woodbury Elementary infuse leadership development into their curriculum.
Provide a Safe Place for Children to Grow
The Y serves all children from diverse backgrounds through youth membership. The Teach Them To Swim Program ensures that youth and their families practice safety around water.
