NAYDO Mission

Inspire and strengthen the philanthropic culture of the YMCA


NAYDO Impact

All YMCAs embrace a culture of giving to develop and sustain abundant resources
to meet their community needs.


More Than a Conference

NAYDO may be best known for our annual conference, but the benefits
and impact of a NAYDO membership are year-round.
