NEW ANNOUNCEMENT! (Campaign Co-Chairs Announced. See below for more)

At the Dubuque Community YMCA/YWCA, we’re preparing to serve future generations while meeting today’s needs of our Members and our community. Our goal is to give the communities we serve a stronger, healthier Y with focused commitment on Youth Development, Healthy Living, Social Responsibility, Eliminating Racism and Empowering Women.

Together, we have completed the reorganization of our Board of Directors, implemented a Strategic Plan focusing on a new facility, integrated new programming and are coming to the end of our 150th Anniversary in the community.



The Dubuque Community YMCA/YWCA is taking steps to replace our current facility. By utilizing the Critical Path approach of the Y-USA, we are taking key steps to ensure the feasibility of a new site for future generations of our community. 



Simply put, it means that we’re planning for the future of the Y!

We have a lot of work to do in the coming months and years, but we are committed to doing our due diligence and communicating our progress with the community, our Members and our donors. 

Thank you for being a part of our Y family, and for your continued support as we move toward this next exciting phase for the Dubuque Community YMCA/YWCA.
