For nearly a century the Emergency Assistance Fund (EAF) has provided financial aid when an accident, illness, death of a loved one, disaster or other crisis strikes. Funded by the very people it helps, EAF is possible through the generous contributions of active and retired YMCA professionals. Grants of up to $10,000 are made to active and retired Y professionals, as well as family members to help provide support during a difficult time.
Support Colleagues in Need
When you give to EAF, your contribution goes directly toward supporting a fellow YMCA professional in a time of crisis.
