Giving & Annual Campaign



At the Hanover Area YMCA, strengthening the community is our cause. We are a powerful thread in the Greater Hanover and Littlestown area, believing anyone regardless of age, income or background, deserves to be healthy, confident, connected, and secure. We are continuously working to keep our community’s most pressing issues in the foreground of our mission, as we create new ways to push to your greatest healthiest You. We help others’ find their purpose, because that’s our purpose.

At the Hanover Area YMCA, we work to make a difference by investing in our youth, community and members with 3 key areas: Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility. We live by our 4 core values in all that we do: CARING, HONESTY, RESPECT, and RESPONSIBILITY and are dedicated to enhancing the spirit, mind and body for all.

For over 50 years, the Hanover Area YMCA has built strong kids, families and communities. With 3 locations- each unique to their own, we collaborate with other local non-profits, area schools, service clubs, businesses and recreational organizations.

What began as the Young Mens’ Christian Association now includes men and women of all ages with a variety of ethnic and religious backgrounds.

Our success throughout the years would not be possible without dedicated staff, countless volunteers, contributors, and of course our members and program participants.

We are beyond blessed and thankful for the Hanover and Littlestown community that supports and allows us to grow.
