The YMCA of Greater Hartford believes in offering as many ways for members to contribute to our community as possible, and to make it an easy experience. That is why we are teaming up with Amazon Smile, round-it-up Cheerful Giving, and other companies dedicated to the non-profit sector.

The easiest way to strengthen our communities is by all chipping in a little every day. That is why we've teamed up with round-it-up company Cheerful Giving!


By linking your debit or credit card to the YGive app or website, you will donate the spare change on every purchase you make, rounding up the purchase totals to the nearest dollar. It's easy and secure; all data is secured with SSL encryption and credentials are never stored. All payment processing is handled by PCI­-compliant 3rd parties with bank­-grade security­, and we promise your personal data will never be exchanged, licensed or sold.


And don't worry, you don't have to give more than you want! In addition to one-time gifts, if you set it up to donate every round-up, you can also set a monthly limit or pause your gifts at any time­!

Amazon Smile


Did you know? The YMCA of Greater Hartford is on Amazon Smile! If you use Amazon, and you shop by using instead of just, then .5% of all eligible purchases will be donated to the Y! It's that simple, and there's no catch; Amazon Smile is the same Amazon you know--same products, same prices, same service. Use it in the exact same way you've always used Amazon, but a portion of your purchase will help support your community!
