The Westport Weston Family YMCA is a nonprofit charitable agency with a 501(c) 3 tax status. It is not part of the town government and relies solely on membership fees — which cover only the programs and services used — and contributions from generous members and donors in the community.
In 2016, the YMCA made the following impact in our local community:
- Family YMCA Members Who Received Financial Assistance or Scholarship Aid in 2016: 939
- Direct Financial Assistance for Membership and Program Fees: $248,000
- Community Outreach Programs and Indirect Support of Nonprofit Partners: $136,000

In 2015, the YMCA Board of Trustees established the Bedford Family Social Responsibility Fund (the “Fund”) to give back to the community and carry forward the legacy of Ruth Bedford. The purpose of the Fund is to provide grants to organizations that focus on closing the “achievement gap” in education.
2016 Total Community Support: $634,000
