MENU Connect with the Y



Tú y yo. You and me. All of us.
In Spanish and English, a “Y” means AND.  One little letter holds the potential for so much more. “And” is a choice. or inclusion, connection and community. The Y is a unique place where all are welcome. All ages, ethnicities, creeds and walks of life. No one is turned away for inability to pay, and that’s a promise we’re proud to keep.


The Y has been bringing neighbors together in downtown Tucson since 1914 – from all corners of Tucson to our hub in the heart of downtown. We know when we work together, we move more individuals, families and communities forward. At the Y, strengthening community is our cause.


It has become increasingly apparent that our 1992 facility must evolve to remain relevant, attractive and accessible. As the needs of our world and community have changed, we must also. With re-imagined, multi-purpose spaces we can support all who seek a healthier and more connected life, today and well into the future.

The YMCA’s Lohse Mission Expansion Capital Campaign is an opportunity to provide support for a renovated and expanded downtown YMCA.  We are asking the community and Y members to help us raise $250,000 to ensure we can complete the project.  Planned renovations and expansions will create a modern, vibrant gathering place FOR ALL, providing wellness, youth development, and purposefully designed space for our neighbors to connect and thrive. These transformations will include:

While all donors of $100 or more will be acknowledged, special recognition opportunities are available for gifts of $1,000 or more.  Your recognition will be prominently displayed at the Lohse Family YMCA.
