Thank you for considering a gift to the Rappahannock Area YMCA! For nearly fifty years, the Rappahannock Area YMCA has proudly served our community through our impact programs. Each program is carefully designed to fulfill our mission of putting Christian principles into practice that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all!


The unanticipated impact of the COVID-19 pandemic forever changed the community and the YMCA mobilized almost overnight to meet those demands while also being severely impacted by the pandemic itself via membership and budget shortfalls. There has never been a more critical time to support the work of the YMCA. Over the past two years, we have redesigned programs to meet the community need, and put an emphasis on ending isolation, inspiring our youth to thrive while reimagining opportunities, all in an effort to restore hope and well-being to our community.

Join us in making an impact in our community
