A Message from CEO, Lynn Lomax

Dear YMCA Community,

Your support of our YMCA has enabled us to respond to the most critical needs in our community as they arise.  Many of you confirmed your commitment to our work through your decision to Stay With Us even when our facilities are closed.  Additionally, other supporters offered donations to uplift our work in the community during this time.  See our message below on Stay With Us membership options.

For almost 100 years, the High Point community has entrusted the YMCA to provide quality childcare for our youth.  During this challenging time, community leadership has turned to the Y to deliver trusted child care for children of essential workers.  We have re-opened our Chavis Y Day Care Center this week to enable many frontline service employees to have reliable care while they are serve us.  Safety is our top priority as we deliver these critical services, we are grateful for our staff who ensure our children get the best care possible.   

Please know your YMCA leadership is partnering with local government and other United Way agencies to respond as needs arise.  In addition to childcare, we are providing support to our senior neighbors and providing meals to children through our backpack program.  To remain successful in our service to others, we need you.  We hope your will Stay With Us as together we navigate the road ahead.   We are working tirelessly to stand up for our community when it needs us most and ensure we evolve from this time as a strong YMCA ready to serve you, our community.

Keeping your membership active will help ensure we remain fully focused on our efforts to support our community. If you choose to keep your membership active, please know how grateful we are for your partnership with us as a cause-driven member. No action is needed by you.




Converting your membership to an ongoing, tax-deductible donation during our temporary suspension of facility access can be completed using this online form.  You will continue to pay your monthly fees, and when we resume normal operations, your donation will end. At that time, we’ll convert you back to regular membership. The YMCA will provide a tax receipt of your charitable donation prior to year-end. Again, we are deeply grateful for your willingness and partnership. 




This outbreak has created enormous uncertainty for us all, but how we respond is within our control. As soon as it became apparent that our Y needed to change course to support our community, we did. Over the past week, we have stepped up to provide childcare for families of essential workers, partnered with the backpack program to supply meals for children and worked with local agencies to support community needs.  If you can partner with us in these efforts now and to support those members who will need financial support for membership and programs when our doors re-open, please make a donation to our cause by completing the form below. We appreciate your generosity in not only Staying with Us, but growing our ability to serve in a greater way.




If you must reduce your budget during this time, we can temporarily suspend your membership dues while our facilities are closed. When normal operations resume, we will reinstate your membership automatically without you incurring a joining fee. To place your membership on hold, complete the form below. We understand the challenges you are under. If you need financial assistance when we resume normal operations, contact us to discuss Y membership options.
