2021 Annual Report

YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth

Reaching Our Community

The YMCA is dedicated to strengthening communities by creating opportunities for all. By providing access to Y programs and services, collaborating with education partners to support the academic success of students, connecting the whole community through wellness initiatives and continuing our work developing the next generation of leaders – the YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth does what we do best – build people, and in turn strengthens our community.

Over the last year, our communities were tested in ways we’ve never seen before. Together, we adapted to the challenges of a pandemic and learned new ways to keep ourselves, our kids and our families healthy and safe. As an organization with more than 131 years of experience in caring for our community, the YMCA responded to these challenges; creatively expanding our programs to meet our community when, where and how we are needed most.

Together, with our community partners, members, volunteers, and staff working together to deliver on the promise of strengthening community, we began to emerge from darkness to the dawn. Together in 2021, dedicated to rebuilding, changemakers and advocates delivered programs that focused on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

Our Impact

By the Numbers

Community Benefit


A leading nonprofit partner throughout the country, the Y has the proven track record to move communities forward, just as we do here in greater Fort Worth.

As a charity, we work every day to address community needs and ensure that all are welcome and that no one is turned away for an inability to pay.

The Y provided nearly $7.4 million in total community benefit in 2021 including:

  • $3.4 million in contributions raised to provide free programs and assistance to our community
  • 16,478 people received program or membership financial assistance
  • $3.2 million invested to subsidize community-based youth programs

During 2021, 1,200 volunteers dedicated over 24,000 hours of time to serve our community through Y activities.

Impacting Our Future

From infancy to Pre-K, it is imperative that children are given the opportunities to experience an environment that enables them to develop naturally and consistently. See how our Early Childhood Learning Center plays a foundational role in impacting the future of youth and families.

Strong Swimmers, Confident Kids

Teaching children how to be safe around water is not a luxury; it is a necessity. From gaining confidence to fostering positive relationships, the Y strives to instill these values (and more) in all of our programs. Take a look at the impact Donna has made through teaching swim lessons.
