World YMCA Emergency Assistance Fund

The World YMCA Emergency Assistance Fund for staff and retirees was founded as “Secours Speciaux” in 1950 to help staff with little or no means to meet personal and family needs. It continues to help people facing medical crisis, natural disasters, inadequate or no pension or problems created by political turmoil and human rights violations.

Learn more about how YMCA Alumni is the administrator for this important fund to help the World YMCA assist local YMCAs with financial support during times of crisis and to provide aid to YMCA staff members with little or no retirement support.

F. William Stahl Award

The F. William Stahl Award – our most prestigious honor -- is presented in Bill's memory by YMCA Alumni. The award is given in recognition of Bill's dedication and commitment to the YMCA, the YMCA profession, and the art of written communications.

Our Partners

YMCA Retirement Fund

The mission of the YMCA Retirement Fund is to empower YMCA employees to achieve economic security, enabling them to focus on strengthening communities through their work for the YMCA.

The YMCA Retirement Fund was created more than a decade before Social Security, at a time when private pensions were rare.

More than 16,000 people are receiving a lifetime annuity from the Fund.

YMCA Alumni appreciates your extra special support. It takes far more than membership dues to provide necessary communication and support to chapters and members. That is why it is so important for members to support our annual campaign. 2020 was a difficult year for all of us. Thank you all.
