Beginning April 1, 2022, the Hunterdon County YMCA in New Jersey and the YMCA of Bucks County in Pennsylvania will come together to create one YMCA across the two counties, operating as the YMCA of Bucks and Hunterdon Counties and led by president and CEO Zane Moore. As a result, Y members and participants will benefit from the specialized programming offered at each location and shared resources for facility and program enhancement. Members can use all seven member branches and will receive member pricing on programs at all locations.
In Pennsylvania, the YMCA of Bucks and Hunterdon Counties operates member branches in Doylestown, Fairless Hills, Newtown, Quakertown and Warminster, with childcare centers in Morrisville, New Britain, New Hope and Quakertown. In New Jersey, the Y includes Round Valley Branch in Annandale, and Deer Path Branch in Flemington, with childcare centers in Annandale and Milford. Outdoor camp locations include Camp Carr in Clinton Township, New Jersey and Holland Outdoor Center in Holland, Pennsylvania.
With revenue of over $25 million, the new Y will employ nearly 2,000 people, serve more than 70,000 members and participants, and provide over $5 million in annual charitable community impact.
“As a combined YMCA, we truly are stronger together and remain committed to building upon the excellence of over 100 years of service to the community,” said Zane Moore, the president and CEO of the YMCA of Bucks and Hunterdon Counties. “Our members and community participants will benefit from a greater variety of programs and services, as well as our ability to leverage the strengths of each organization for mutual benefit.”
In August of 2021, following the retirement of president and CEO Bruce Black, the Hunterdon County YMCA entered a management agreement for the YMCA of Bucks County to provide executive leadership to the Hunterdon County YMCA under president and CEO Zane Moore. During that time, volunteer leaders from both organizations underwent a process of due diligence resulting in the agreement to bring the YMCAs together as one.
