Financial Support

NYA connects our community through sport and wellness providing programs for all ages. Through unique and innovative programming, NYA provides a place to deepen connections with your community, family and self.

NYA takes pride in the trust our community has in our staff and facility. The greatest validation of our mission is parents feel their children are safe at NYA; individuals trust our trainers with their individual wellness, and our facility creates opportunities to congregate, compete, and exercise in a clean safe environment.

Scholarship Opportunities for Youth: NYA was founded on the vision to create opportunities for youth in our community. NYA through the generosity of the community offers both academic and organizational scholarships to children who need extra support. We believe no child should miss an opportunity to become their best self because they lack the financial resources.

Senior Programs: The Key to long term independent living for seniors is physical fitness and sustainable relationships. Stronger bone density, improved balance, cardiovascular health and social connection are all measurable results of the senior based programs at NYA. Many of the 5,000 seniors in our community are on fixed incomes creating opportunities for this population is a priority for NYA.
Community Events: We are a strong and resilient community that enjoys the company of our neighbors. NYA takes pride in our ability to bring the
community together in our facility and to share in the joy of children playing together safely. Open play nights, sport clinics, courtyard events provide families the opportunity to connect through sport and play or feel comfortable leaving their child in a facility that is safe with a staff that will care for them is central to NYA’s mission.

2560 Community Weight Loss Challenge: NYA embarked on it’s first of an ongoing Fitness Series for the Community of Newtown. Our goal is to assist our community to lose 2,560 lbs. over the next five years. Leveraging the power of our community to support one another NYA has worked to identify those who need a kick start to fitness. Creating a program based on proven fitness and nutrition techniques anchored by the team mentality NYA has embarked on a five-year journey to make wellness available to all.

Your support of NYA is an investment in our community. Each dollar that we raise has a direct impact on the physical and emotional well-being of your neighbors. As a non-profit organization, the generosity of our supporters is vital to our success and allows us to meet the needs of all who benefit from our programs and expand our offerings to serve the community.
