Helping our Community To Reach Farther

The Arizona State Alliance was established to provide a unified effort to address increased scrutiny facing the non-profit sector. It is comprised of three corporate YMCA’s: The Valley of the Sun YMCA, YMCA of Southern AZ, and Prescott YMCA of Yavapai County.

Our Alliance fosters increased collaboration to proactively manage advocacy efforts. We understand that to advance the YMCA’s mission and to protect and promote our charitable status, we must establish best practices and share expertise in order to strengthen our alliance.
