Tap into leading expertise and methodology. Band together for negotiating power when buying. Maintain control of what, when and where you buy.


All YMCAs are encouraged to participate in YMCA Purchasing. By working together, we can reduce costs, save time, ensure value and improve fiscal stewardship.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Contact us
    Ask questions, sign up, get a personalized plan and receive training to start using the online system.
  2. Buy goods and services
    Order what you need, when you need it. Keep the freedom to also buy elsewhere. You can add your suppliers to the system, too.
  3. Receive delivery
    Get your items delivered directly to your location and everything will be on one monthly invoice.
  4. Get support
    Need consulting on operations? Ask our expert team to do a spend analysis, best practices assessment or serve as your procurement team.
