The Armed Services YMCA is proud to be included in the United Heroes Campaign, a comprehensive listing of pre-screened, certified, high quality charities serving military families and veterans with a detailed explanation of the services each provides.  The Armed Services YMCA is a top-rated military non-profit that impacts young enlisted Military Families with innovative no and low cost programs and services.  Please make a one time gift or a recurring donation on your credit card monthly to help make military life easier. The ASYMCA does not receive any government funding, dues or membership, and is entirely funded by private donations. Here is an example how how your donation can make a difference:


  • A donation of $25 provides a military mother a half day of respite childcare to decompress  and attend personal appointments.
  • A donation of $45 connects and comforts a young military child with a free, hand-made, personalized photo quilt of their deployed parent thru “Operation Kid Comfort”.
  • A donation of $100 enables three military children to attend a week of “Operation Hero”, an  after-school character development program specially designed to increase resiliency and help them handle the challenges of life  in a military family.


The Armed Services YMCA offers no and low-cost programs for nearly 500,000 active-duty enlisted military and their families each year at 33 branches and affiliates with hands on innovative programming nationwide  with the help of 18,000 volunteers. For the 6th consecutive year, the Armed Services YMCA was rated in the top 3% of charities nationwide by Charity Navigator in 2011. We thank you for contributing what you can to assist in the effort.  Your tax deductible donation (Tax ID #36-3274346) to the ASYMCA, a top-rated non-profit, will make a significant difference in the lives of young military service members and their families.

The Armed Services YMCA has received a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent  evaluator of charities for the sixth consecutive year. Receiving four out of a possible four stars indicates that the organization excels, as compared to other charities in America, in allocating and growing finances in the  most fiscally responsible way possible. Less than 3% of the charities (rated by Charity Navigator) receive six consecutive four 4-star evaluations.
