“The roots of all goodness lie in the soil of appreciation for goodness.” – Dalai Lama

As the Proud CEO of The Bangor Region YMCA, I am so blessed to be surrounded by the goodness of our Y every day. The positive impact our Y makes on every child, family, and individual who comes through our doors would not be possible without the generosity of others on a regular basis.

YOUR IMPACT—the impact of your generosity and kindness—goes beyond providing financial assistance to those in need of our programs and services. Not only are you helping us change the lives of those we serve, but you are also supporting the hard work of our incredible staff who have gone above and beyond in making sure we are able to continue to serve our community during this ongoing nationwide staffing shortage. Your generous gesture shows our staff how much you appreciate their dedication in serving our community.

Please join me in supporting this year's Giving Campaign and DOWNLOAD this brochure to learn more about all that we do and the many ways you can GIVE to our beloved YMCA.

I am the happiest CEO on the planet, not just because of all that we do every day to impact the lives of so many, but also because I get to see the best of people through their kindness and generosity. From my heart, I thank you for caring so much about our organization that has been serving this wonderful region for more than 155 years! What a difference we make every day, but we could not make that difference without YOU. I am truly grateful.

Diane Dickerson, CEO
