Important Message

The staff and board leaders at the Fulton County YMCA have been working diligently to ensure that the vital and essential programs offered by the Y continue. However, the challenges faced during the pandemic have placed unforeseen financial hardships on the organization.

Recently, because of the adverse impact of the pandemic, the Board of Directors made the difficult decision to change the leadership structure. With the goal of sustaining the YMCA for future generations, the board has unanimously decided to partner with the Capital District YMCA to provide support and systems to our operation, and eliminated the CEO position.

The Fulton County board of directors are excited about the opportunities for growth this partnership will provide. Toward that end, Matthew Skaarup from the Capital District YMCA will lead these efforts at our YMCA. Matt has successfully led three branches at the Capital District YMCA and is well-positioned to support the Fulton County YMCA.

Thank you for your continued support of the Fulton County YMCA. For any questions, please contact Matt Skaarup at 518-456-3634 ext. 1100.


Peter Lawrence President, Board of Directors

Dan Casey Vice President, Board of Directors
