The Granite YMCA: Downtown Manchester

Established in 1854, The Granite YMCA is part of the worldwide non-profit Y organization. With branches in Manchester, Goffstown, Londonderry, Portsmouth, and Rochester and New Hampshire’s leading camping programs, we focus on youth development, healthy living, family strengthening, and social responsibility. The Granite YMCA is part of the state’s safety net in support of those less fortunate.  In 2023, we were proud to provide financial aid and/or free services valued at $1.508 million dollars to more than 12,286 individuals across NH. This outreach included: sliding scale fee structure for programs and services, free use of facilities to a broad range of non-profits, camp scholarships and reduced fee or free child care services.

    We feel so blessed! Raising our grandsons is wonderful, but they cost an arm and a leg. It has been so helpful to receive financial aid to send them to the Club. We are so grateful.

    My daughter loves it here [at the Boys & Girls Club of Manchester]. I literally wouldn’t have an income [and be able to work] if it wasn’t for you. Thank you so much for all you do!
