Press Release: 


Stamford YMCA to Permanently Close

February 16, 2024 – After serving the Stamford, CT community since 1868 the Stamford YMCA Board of Directors announced the YMCA Operations at 10 Bell St will be closing no later than March 31, 2024.

After-effects of the pandemic, reduced membership, and declining public funds for after school care proved to be a combination of obstacles too great for the YMCA Stamford to continue operations.

“We'd like to thank all our members, donors, and employees for their devoted sponsorship of the YMCA over all these years,” according to Paul Macari, YMCA Board Chair.

The pool will shut down immediately and other services will be closing over the coming weeks.

“We have been a proud member of the Stamford community for over 150 years. Unfortunately, as a result of declining revenues and escalating expenses it was a clear decision that the operations were financially unsustainable,” says Peter Wieland, YMCA Board Treasurer.

Members are being reached out to in separate communications with specific guidance regarding their monthly membership withdrawal.
