KEEP THE BEAVERTON HOOP YMCA IN OUR COMMUNITY
Youth Sports for Generations to Come
Our vision is simple—purchase the property and continue to provide programs in the Beaverton community for many years to come.
State Awards $5.1 Million for Beaverton Hoop YMCA Property Purchase
As the 2019 Oregon Legislative session came to a close the YMCA received the exciting news that we will receive $5.1 million for the purchase of the Beaverton Hoop YMCA property. These funds get us closer to our $10 million goal for the capital expansion on this property, which will ensure we provide youth sports at this location for generations to come. In addition, these moneys will help renovate a second building for a new Child Development Center, which will increase access to quality, affordable child care. Read our Media Release.
The Beaverton Hoop YMCA is a local community center that strengthens and serves by providing quality programming for all ages. We passionately focus on strengthening communities with programs that protect, teach, connect, heal, nourish and encourage youth, adults, seniors and families. For the past decade, we have been privileged to serve the greater Beaverton area by making positive changes in the lives of the people who participate in our programs.
In 2018, we served 10,000 youth through programs offered inside and outside our walls—extending out further into Washington County with programs for youth in multiple school districts. We see hundreds of kids from the Portland metro area participate in our nationally ranked competitive basketball program. And we serve a large population of active older adults through our group exercise programs and provide a community for them to continue building healthy relationships in our facility. Members and participants engage their spirit, mind and body through our programs—this is unique to the YMCA, that no other fitness facility has.
We have a great opportunity to further impact lives of our neighbors by purchasing the Beaverton Hoop YMCA property, which will solidify our commitment to the Beaverton community. The property includes the current 50,000 square foot building, as well as the addition of a smaller building. This purchase ensures our ability to continue providing programs for kids, families and active older adults beyond 2020.
Please join us in support of our shared community and help us expand our reach to the communities beyond.
Capital Campaign Goal
To put the Christian principles of love, respect, honesty, responsibility and service into practice though programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
