01.04.2019

quakertown R1Upper Bucks YMCA has officially merged with YMCA of Bucks County, creating one YMCA organization across Bucks County. The Ys began operating as one organization on January 1, 2019.

In October of 2018, Central Bucks Family YMCA, Lower Bucks Family YMCA and Upper Bucks YMCA joined together to announce a shared future and bold commitment to significantly impact the lives of youth and families and the health and wellness of individuals of all ages across Bucks County. At that time, the Central and Lower Bucks associations announced their official merger into one organization under the new name YMCA of Bucks County.

On January 1, Upper Bucks YMCA joined the association. Collectively, YMCA of Bucks County has member branches in Doylestown, Fairless Hills, Newtown, Quakertown and Warminster, as well as child care centers in Fairless Hills, Morrisville, New Britain, Newtown and Quakertown with an outdoor camp center in Holland. With revenue of over $20 million, they employ 1,600 people, serve more than 60,600 members and participants, and provide nearly $5 million in charitable community impact annually.  

Having one YMCA organization across Bucks County means members and participants will have more convenient access to services, close to home and work, and benefit from the specialized programming offered at each location. Members can use all five member branches and will receive member pricing on programs at all locations.

"As a countywide YMCA, our members and community participants will benefit from access to specific facility amenities and a greater array of programs, including our community impact programs that support veterans, cancer survivors, individuals with special abilities, and more, ” said Zane Moore, president and CEO of YMCA of Bucks County. “We are committed to offering high quality programs that meet needs across the county and address specific needs within the communities we serve as well.”
