Door County YMCA closes in on $10.2 million campaign goal

Your support is helping a goal become a reality for the Door County YMCA.


The organization announced on Thursday that it is within $130,000 of its $10.2 million goal for its capital campaign. The money raised is going towards the expansive addition and renovation of its Sturgeon Bay Program Center. When the project is complete, members will experience a new youth activity center and wellness center to go along with additional class and community spaces.


With half of the facility under renovation, Door County YMCA CEO Tonya Felhofer thanks its members and guests for their flexibility and patience. “To say it’s crowded and crazy is an understatement,” says Felhofer, “Our members have been and continue to be incredibly flexible and positive. They are using alternate entry points, have had to be flexible as we have relocated class spaces, have learned to navigate new ways of accessing bathrooms and locker rooms, and have endured pounding, jackhammering, and contractors in and out of their classes. Despite all of that, they are thankful and excited about the future of this center.”


The annual campaign totals and the Sturgeon Bay Program Center are not the only aspects of the Door County YMCA that are growing. The organization also announced that it kicked off 2023 with an all-time high of 9,257 members for its facilities in Sturgeon Bay and Fish Creek.
