My mission is to give.

This year, I have made a goal to live this idea more fully. I am donating 5% of my annual business profits from Staaterman Coaching / Staaterman Enterprises, LLC (www.staceystaaterman.com) to the West Essex YMCA's Annual Fundraising Campaign. West Essex YMCA is a division of the Metropolitan YMCA of the Oranges, a 4-Star Rating from Charity Navigator, and a 501(c)3 non-profit social services organization.

Why the Y? My family is a Y family. For more than 14 years, the Y has helped me and my husband navigate the complexities of being working parents by offering great programs and childcare options for our daughter. In 2021, my husband renewed his strength by participating in the YMCA/Live Strong wellness program for those living with cancer. 

In 2019, I joined the West Essex YMCA’s Board of Managers and my 2021 and 2022 give-back commitment more deeply aligns me with an organization I am proud to champion. 

When you do business with my company, a part of your investment supports the YMCA’s mission to Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility. The West Essex YMCA prides itself on ensuring that no one is ever turned away from one of our programs because they can not afford to participate. The Annual Fundraising Campaign funds key programs and financial assistance to deserving individuals, families, and children in the West Essex YMCA’s New Jersey service area (West Orange, Roseland, Livingston, and Caldwell.)

While the world around us has changed, the Y has remained a constant force of good, providing critical services that are helping our communities impacted by the crises of the past year. In addition to health and wellness programs the Y is known for, did you know the Y has provided:

There's a bright future ahead, but the only way we’ll get there is TOGETHER. Join us in healing our neighborhoods as we direct our community funding to these critical and essential services urgently needed to support the response and recovery of our region.

In these times of financial hardship, this cause is more urgent than ever.

  • Delivered 26,140 pounds of food to those at risk along with fresh vegetables from the West Orange School Community Gardens
  • Gave 431 kids an amazing summer camp experience
  • Provided financial aid to 1 in 4 kids in our Early Childcare Learning Center
  • Changed 48 lives by teaching kids how to swim through our free Safety Around Water Program
  • Utilized the skills of 100 volunteers to strengthen our communities

Through donations and pledges received during the Annual Campaign, the Y is able to help individuals and families access programs that improve their health and well-being, regardless of their economic status.
