2017 Annual Campaign Funding

Aiden Rupp Memorial Scholarship Fund

Keeping Kids Safe Around Water

The Aiden Rupp Memorial Scholarship fund was established in 2012 at the Richard G. Snyder YMCA Campus. Aiden’s parents Tim and Amy Rupp created this fund in memory of their son whose life was cut short in a drowning accident in 2004. This trust has been created to fund swim lessons for children in need. Aiden loved the water and his memory is sure to live on in the new swimmers that are born each day.

Aiden's Story

Every day, the Richard G. Snyder YMCA Campus strengthens your community through programs and services focused on:

Youth Development

All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, under the guidance of adults who care about them and believe in their potential. We see every interaction with young people as an opportunity for learning and development.

Youth Development
Healthy Living

Health and well-being are all about balance. That’s why we help people and families build and maintain healthy habits for spirit, mind and body in their everyday lives. By helping kids, adults, families and seniors from all  backgrounds improve their health and well-being, we build a stronger community.

Healthy Living
Social Responsibility

With our doors open to all, we work every day to connect people from all backgrounds and support those who need us most. We take on the most urgent needs in our community and inspire a spirit of service in return. Our members, volunteers, supporters and staff demonstrate the power of what we can achieve by giving back together.

Social Responsibility 2
Capital Campaign

The Y continually seeks new ways to more effectively meet community needs. These needs
drive our Y’s programs and services, which then affect the facilities our Y requires to best serve our community. A capital project is therefore an exciting opportunity that can position our Y to provide more impactful services to more community members.


The Y has been connecting with families and their communities for more than 150 years.

A healthy, well-funded endowment ensures the overall financial sustainability of our Association.

Whether you want to support YMCA initiatives in the future, or start making an impact today, your planned gift is a tangible expression of support for the positive work of our YMCA.
