Downtown YMCA

On April 11, the Lohse Family YMCA located in downtown Tucson broke ground on a $5 million expansion and renovation that will increase both the space for and quality of programming. In total, the so-called Mission Expansion Campaign that began in 2018 raised $4.3 million. Contributions from the Burton Family Foundation and the Kasser Family also helped solidify the expansion of the 30-year-old facility.

“It has become increasingly apparent that our (downtown) 1992 facility must evolve to remain relevant, innovative, and accessible. As the needs of our world and community have changed, we must also. With re-imagined, multi-purpose spaces we can support all who seek a healthier and more connected life, today and well into the future,” said YMCA President and CEO Kurtis Dawson. “We are humbled by the level of support the community has provided us over these past few years. Whether it was a gift of time or money, so many individuals and organizations have helped us stay strong through very challenging times.” 

The expansion will modernize the welcome center (which will be renamed The Burton Family Foundation Welcome and Connection Center), add a new YMCA bike hub, add an “airnasium” for outdoor programming, add a new connection lounge, and renovate the aquatics center.

The project is expected to complete in early 2023.
