Social Responsibility


Scholarship Overview

The Dorchester County Family YMCA makes a special promise to our community: we will never turn anyone away for any reason. Our Annual Campaign and fundraising efforts support this promise. In 2014 the Y awarded:

  • $68,500 in membership scholarships
  • $15,100 in program scholarships
  • $28,400 in membership discount programs
  • That’s a total of $112,000 in scholarship support to our local community.

We cannot do this without the financial support of our members, volunteers, donors, staff, funders and business community. So thank you for your kind and generous support and belief in our cause.
