As a non-profit, we rely on community support. Our donations, grants, and partnership funding are how we support our employees, achieve our mission, and how we keep the lights on at 39 S Market St. Every day, we are in need of community support but there are times when larger support is needed to achieve larger goals. Now is that time. The YMI Cultural Center is looking to raise $5,000,000.00. These funds will go towards elevating the look, reach, and abilities of our organization and benefit three specific areas of need within the organization:

Building preservation, Organizational Capacity and Sustainability
