Case Study: Monroe County YMCA

It was our pleasure  to work with the Monroe County YMCA in BloomingtMonroeBoards6_Page_03-240x300on, Indiana as they planned and executed an ambitious capital campaign.

Bloomington is a city of 80,000 in Southern Indiana. For decades, the YMCA has been a part of this vibrant university community. As the town expands, the need for a YMCA – especially a Y child care center – on the county’s Northwest side became more and more apparent. In addition, the Y’s current facility was due for some much-needed improvements.

Donor By Design Group worked with the YMCA on a feasibility study and then to the development of their capital case for support, which included campaign materials, a video, vision boards and more. The staff and volunteers of the Y have used these tools to educate prospective donors about the project and the Y’s vision for serving the kids and families of Monroe County.

As Erika Albert, former Development Director at the Monroe County YMCA put it: “I think our donors feel like this is the right time with the right people and the right team to lead the effort. It was great to have the Donor By Design team on our side!”
