39TH ANNUAL NAYDO CONFERENCE ON YMCA PHILANTHROPY  APRIL 1-4  WASHINGTON D.C.

Smaller YMCA Network (Under $4M)

Coordinator:  Angie Lassley, YMCA of Salina Kansas, alassley@salinaymca.org
Advisor: Paul Andresen, NAYDO Alumni & Retiree Team, pdandresen@gmail.com

This network is for  independent associations with budgets size of under $4M (branches and centers with budgets of that size may attend but the Operations Network would probably be a better fit).  Not sure how all of this information at NAYDO can possibly apply to you?  Make plans for getting the most out of your conference experience by connecting with ohter staff who understand how you operate when you have no development department and are "doing it all". 

NOTE:  Smaller YMCAs ($2M and under) can apply for an $80 grant provided by the YMCA of Metropolitan Washington to cover the cost of NAYDO Day on Capitol Hill. Apply on regular NAYDO Financial Assistance Form found on this website.

Philanthropy Forum for Smaller Ys

Friday, April 3    
3:15 - 4:15 pm


How does all this work in a small Y? NAYDO Council Member Shadra Jenkins, Small Y Network Chair and CEO of the Jackson Area Y in Ohio will facilitate this session where attendees can share what they learned, brainstorm how to implement it back home without the benefit of a development team, and determine at least one action step to focus on. Time will be allotted to discuss ways NAYDO can become more helpful to Small Ys and ways networking started at the conference can continue year round.

SMY Designation on Workshops

Presenters were asked to indicate if their content is applicable to Small and Mid-Size YMCAs often without development staff. Look for SMY in the list of target audiences.
