One Number - Giving Tuesday


Every day the Greater Waterbury YMCA works to ensure that people have access to the resources they need to live healthy, connected, and secure lives--no matter who they are or where they’re from.

As the year draws to a close, we ask you to consider making an end-of-year contribution to support our cause. Because of the generosity of donors like you, our community is growing stronger every single day. 

Learn more here and donate today for youth development, for healthy living, for social responsibility.

The Y. For a better us.  

The Y is where membership means more

That's because when you join the Y, you're joining more than a gym. You're joining a community of people who connect, motivate, encourage, nourish, and support one another. At the Y, you'll form healthy habits, challenge yourself, make new friends, and find out what you can achieve. 

Your Membership includes:

Ready Set Go - A Free 12 Week weight loss and nutrition program to hold you accountable and help you reach your personal goals. 

Free babysitting while you work out.

Access to our: State-of-the-art Wellness Center, 2 pools, Basketball, Volleyball, Racquetball, Rock Climbing, Indoor Track, Hot Tub, Sauna, and Steam Room.

Over 50 Group Fitness and Spin classes each week.

Membership-based discounts and priority registration for special programs like swim lessons, youth sports, and Y athletic clubs. 

Guest privileges at over 2,000 Y's nationwide.
