Our YMCA plays an integral role in the life of the community it serves. Our success means that the quality of life of South County residents from infants to seniors is greatly enhanced.
When the two pools in our new South County Family YMCA are packed with children and teens taking swim lessons and participating on the many swim teams that will have access to the pool; when adults and seniors are exercising in our water aerobics classes; when those who are injured are rehabilitating in our warm water therapy pool….we will indeed be DIVING IN…to help our community.
Donors and campaign volunteers will also be able to “MAKE A DIFFERENCE” throughout their community by helping to build a YMCA that provides impactful youth, teen, senior, and family programs such as youth and adult sports, day camp, day care, healthy lifestyles, group exercise, and much, much more. You can make a difference that will transform, enrich, and connect the community in new and exciting ways that would not be possible without a community YMCA!
The campaign goal is to build a 60,000 square foot, state-of-the-art South County Family YMCA that will include the following features:
- Grand Lobby
- Wellness Center
- Aquatic Center
- Large Gymnasium
- Kid’s Family Adventure Center
- Indoor Running/Walking Track
- Group Exercise Studios
- Multipurpose Room
- Locker Rooms
- Multipurpose Athletic Fields

Who can help?
This project needs the support of the community. We are asking individuals, families, friends of the YMCA of Frederick County, and residents of Urbana and the surrounding area to contribute. Select corporations and foundations will also be asked to support the project.
How much is needed?
The success of this project depends on the Frederick community’s charitable giving. The campaign goal is $22 million, and we ask that you give as much as you are comfortable with. Your gift can be payable over the next three to five years.
Are securities an acceptable gift?
The YMCA of Frederick County is able to receive stock directly. This option may increase your giving capabilities substantially. The Y does not speculate on stock, so it will be sold as soon as it’s received. Please check with your tax professional to find out how you may benefit from this type of giving.
