Foundation supports YMCA Piqua branch capital campaign

The Piqua Community Foundation is a proud supporter of Miami County YMCA’s new Piqua branch project, which broke ground on May 2 downtown. The Foundation made its largest grant pledge to date to the project during the spring 2021 cycle.

The project site is across High Street from the current YMCA building and adjacent to The Foundation office. The 76,000-square-foot building will cost $21.5 million and include a family aquatic center, field house with basketball courts and turf field, group exercise space and youth ninja room.

YMCA leaders expect construction to take 20 months with completion in the first quarter of 2024. The current Piqua YMCA facility continues to operate with full services while the new facility is being constructed.

“We could not be happier with how the project is moving forward. The support from partners like The Piqua Community Foundation has been fantastic. We are currently sitting at just under 90 percent of our fundraising goal, so there is still some work to do, but we remain confident we will close the gap.”
