We Invite You to Participate in Making Military Life Easier.
We could not do it without you!
The Armed Services YMCA (ASYMCA) is a Charity Watch and Charity Navigator top-rated 501(c)(3) military charity, ranking among the top two percent of charities nationwide for effectiveness and fiscal responsibility. We provide no and low-cost programming and support services to troops and their families with a particular focus on junior-enlisted men and women. 89 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to support programs ensuring the highest level of support for our nation’s heroes.
As a national member association of the YMCA of the USA, we operate more than 200 program centers nationwide at 34 branch and affiliate locations. In coordination with the Department of Defense and installation commands, we work closely to identify gaps in support and services currently available, and tailor our programming to meet those needs.
We rely solely on private donations and grants. Our more than 15,000 volunteers deliver over 127,000 volunteer hours each year to serve more than 500,000 troops and their family members our programming reaches annually.
