How To Help



Make A Gift

For nearly 160 years the Armed Services YMCA has been strengthening our military families due to the generosity of our valued donors. Our young and brave service members face the unique challenges of military life, and at times struggle to fully provide the basics for themselves or their families. They are voluntarily serving and sacrificing daily for our freedom. With shrinking defense budgets, troop and family programs are being cut at every military installation.

In close coordination with installation commanders, the Armed Services YMCA tailors our programming to fill the highest priority gaps with low and no-cost programs and services including child care, hospital assistance, counseling, emergency food and clothing assistance, education programs, as well as family, youth and teen programs.


Donate Your Vehicle

Donate your car, truck, trailer, boat, RV, motorcycle, off-road vehicles, heavy equipment, and other motorized vehicles—running or not—to the Armed Services YMCA partners through our partner CARS. 


Amazon Smile 

The Armed Services YMCA of Hampton Roads branch is set up to receive proceeds from the AmazonSmile Foundation, which donates 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products directly to our location. These donations are then utilized to help keep our programs & services free or low-cost to our military families.


Join Us for Dinner 

Occasionally, we have the opportunity to partner with local restaurants that donate a portion of an evening's dinner sales to our organization. Be sure to check our Facebook page at the link below for any upcoming Dine Out for a Cause event.
