Our Mission

Our mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for ALL.

The YMCA OF GREATER SPARTANBURG is one of our community’s oldest nonprofit organizations. Established in 1869 and chartered in 1903, the Y is committed to strengthening individuals and families in our service area and across the country. At the Y, we’re here to help you find your “why” – your greater sense of purpose – by connecting you with opportunities to improve your health, support young people, make new friends and contribute to a stronger, more cohesive community for all. 


We provide more than $2 million annually in scholarships, free programs and subsidies to our community. Please consider making the Y your charity of choice!

The YMCA is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Our tax ID (EIN) is 57-0314425, and our legal name is Young Men’s Christian Association of Greater Spartanburg.
