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 2020, the YMCA made the following impact in our local community:

  • $427,000 was given out in to people in our community to be members and participate in programs.
  • 30 children out of the 728 children that attended YMCA Camp Mahackeno were given Camperships totaling $25,082.
  • The Y provided 604 life-saving swim lessons.
  • When the facility was closed from March 2020 through June 2020, Y staff called over 800 senior members to check in on them.
  • 83 Children had a safe place to go after school and the Y provided 19 families financial assistance totaling $28,563.
  • Bedford Family Social Responsibility Fund Grants Awarded: $280,000
    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.
