The Golden Isles YMCA Foundation was formed in June 1992 to support the opening of the Y’s Terrill Thomas Family Center, at 144 Scranton Connector. Since that time, the foundation has supported the family center with critical funding to support its operations to meet the community’s most pressing needs.
