Capital Campaign | Expansion Project

There’s never been a better time to build a better us.

You know the challenges that we face in Sanford and the surrounding communities. People of all ages and backgrounds are struggling to reach their full potential. More and more children face seemingly insurmountable learning gaps. Families find it difficult to spend quality time together.  People are not connected to their neighbors and face time happens through a phone.  And instead of seeing the income gap shrink, it seems all we do is watch it grow…and we need to grow to continue to provide opportunities for every child, teen and adult to achieve his or her potential regardless of economic status.

As our community has grown, so have its needs. For the past twelve years, our Y has been undergoing a capital expansion project to enhance the services we provide and create new, improved opportunities so that we can have an even greater impact on our community.

Our new, larger facility space includes a 5,500 square foot fitness center with brand new strength and cardio equipment, new game room, new larger Prime Time space, spin room, spacious group fitness studio and program spaces, and more.

COMING SOON: The Y Owls Preschool has taken flight and will soon grow into the new YMCA Early Learning Center. The Early Learning Center will be located in a newly renovated, larger classroom environment that will provide further opportunities to foster children’s social, emotional, cognitive and physical development. Our new center will offer a separate entrance to provide families independent, exclusive access. More information coming soon!

We’ve come a long way, but there is much more work to do. Every gift toward the capital campaign will support the growth of young learners through construction of our new YMCA Early Learning Center, new furnishings and equipment for our new spaces, and other renovations to facility space.
