Two Rivers YMCA Endowment


The Two Rivers YMCA, located in Moline, IL has been a part of the Quad Cities Area since 1885. They are a family-oriented organization committed to providing programs that build a healthy mind, body and spirit by inserting Christian values into the way they run their organization and services. YMCA programs place great importance on respect, responsibility, honesty and caring, and work hard to incorporate these principles within day-to-day operations.

The YMCA offers many programs and services including fitness classes, swimming lessons and sporting leagues. Also, through youth programs at the YMCA, children learn character development and life skills to help them develop core values that will carry them into a happy, healthy and productive adulthood. At-risk children benefit a great deal from additional mentoring and positive role models they work with at the YMCA, and outreach programs are extended into schools and communities where they are needed the most.

In 2006, the YMCA gave over $51,000 in scholarships so anyone desiring to join would not be turned away due to financial insufficiencies. Services are extended to anyone, regardless or race, income or religion.
