Help the Y Build a Better Us! (March 19, 2018)


 2018 Rochester Area Family Y "Build a Better Us" fundraising campaign


 

A Beaming Message:

I believe in the Y. Its mission--healthy living, youth development, social responsibility--touches me deeply and moves me to act. That's why I serve on the Y's community board and volunteer in its programs.

But I also know well the old adage of "No Money No Mission". And our Y needs me (and you) to Build a Better Us.

So I give financially--happy to know that my financial support is empowering at least "One Child with an opportunity to grow, learn and thrive at a YMCA day camp."

I urge my friends who have visited my Community Beam (dmcbeam) portal and found its content useful to join me in giving to the Y.

Site Information
Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
