92Y needs your help
Many of you have asked how you can help 92Y as we face tremendous financial losses due to COVID-19. You can help sustain our beloved institution and support the creation of new, online programming that will bring comfort and inspiration to our community.
Donate between now and October 31 and your gift will be matched dollar for dollar by a group of 92Y board members—going twice as far in supporting 92Y at this critical time. Thank you for anything you can do to help.
