Ways to Give.

Whitney M. Young, Jr. Health Center is a not-for-profit organization that relies heavily on charitable donations from people like you. At Whitney Young Health, you can be sure that your donation is hard at work making the Capital District a healthier, more stable place to live. Our patients are your neighbors, your co-workers, and the person who served your coffee this morning. Your gift can make a difference in their lives, and of those around them. Please give generously.

We make giving simple – secure credit card donations and pledges to be paid at a later date may be submitted on-line. Checks may be mailed to the Development Office, Whitney Young Health, 920 Lark Drive, Albany, NY 12207. To discuss a gift of tangible items or stocks, contact Maureen Yee, Development Director, at 518-591-4471 or myee@wmyhealth.org.


Special Events.

Whitney Young Health hosts two special events during the year to raise awareness about and financial support for the care we provide and the people we serve. These events are open to the general public. Local businesses are encouraged to sponsor one or both events in return for publicity and admission to the event. If you are interested in sponsoring or helping to plan these events, contact the Development & Marketing Associate at 518-591-4472 or events@wmyhealth.org.

Heroes for Health™, new in 2013, was created by a committee of young professionals who wanted a unique event that promoted healthy activities while raising funds to help our patients overcome their barriers to good health. More than 115 runners participated in the inaugural event - a super hero themed obstacle run in Troy's Prospect Park.

The Legacy Event, our annual awards dinner, honors individuals and organizations that have made a difference in the Capital Region, particularly for the populations we serve. 

Thank you to all who attended Legacy Event 2016! Check out the photos taken throughout evening on our Facebook page here and "like" us.

Early Literacy Program.

To help children grow up with books and a love of reading, Whitney Young Health provides age appropriate books to children of all ages at well-child visits.

The program derives much of its impact from the trust that parents place in pediatric primary care providers whose job is to help their children grow up healthy. By having our providers offer age-appropriate advice on reading, and then reinforcing the importance of books in the home by giving the child a new book, we are able to emphasize the importance of developing early literacy skills.

The Early Literacy Program at Whitney Young is coordinated by volunteers who are always looking for donations of new age appropriate books. If you are interested in learning more about Whitney Young Health's Early Literacy Program, please contact info@wmyhealth.org.
