YMCA Community

Since 1947, the Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA has been providing quality services to meet the developing needs of our communities. Family focused activities are fostered in an atmosphere of caring, respect, responsibility and honesty as well as an understanding of international cultures.

In order to assure the perpetuation of the YMCA as a Christian organization relating to the basic needs of people, especially youth, the Board of Trustees and Directors established the Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA Endowment Fund.


Supporting YCares

Y_Logo_Red All around us we see images of children in need. These needs come in many forms – from food, clothing and shelter, to guidance and support. Whatever the needs, the Y is committed to improving the lives of children and their families in our communities by providing safe places, caring and trained staff, and programs that teach life skills.

Please help the Y make a difference in the lives of children in need.

You can participate by making a financial contribution to the Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA Strong Kids Campaign. To make a tax-deductible gift to the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign, please call Anne Vardy in our Executive Office at 908-889-1999 for more information.



As a YMCA volunteer, you can lead a program, serve as a role model for young people or help out in an office or at a special event. No matter how you help, you’ll make a big difference as you work with others to create a feeling of connection in your community. The YMCA needs people like you! Do something good...Volunteer at the YMCA. Come to the Member Service Desk for a volunteer application or call 908-889-8880.

During these difficult economic times, there are more and more families in need; struggling to make ends meet. The Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA wants you to know that we are here to help.

We realize that certain individuals are not able to utilize our services due to financial hardships. To meet this need, the YMCA has established an Assistance Fund. Those funds have been made possible through the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign, (www.ymcastrongkids.org), and the support of designated gifts through the United Way. Should you wish to be considered for assistance, simply request an application at our Member Services Desk. All information is kept strictly confidential.
