Your Gift. Your Impact.

Did you know that the Portage Y is a charity?

So many people think that the Y is just a place to work out and play basketball; which is only partially true. While we hold physical fitness paramount as the country battles health epidemics like heart disease, diabetes, and obesity, it's just the tip of the Y's iceberg of services; the part that's visible.  If you look deeper under the surface, you'll discover that the Y is so much more than a gym.  The Y cares deeply for our city's children, starting with our preschoolers, to our building athletes, gymnasts and swimmers, to elementary students who need a protective place to engage before and after school, and to our summer campers.
