DOYLESTOWN – Beginning July 1, 2024, YMCA of Bucks and Hunterdon Counties will officially come together with Greater Valley YMCA, operating as River Crossing YMCA, led by President/CEO Zane Moore. As a result, Y members and participants from Bucks, Lehigh and Northampton counties in Pennsylvania and Hunterdon County in New Jersey will benefit from the facility amenities and specialized programming offered at all 12 member branches.

With revenue of over $55 million, the new Y will employ over 2,000 people, serve more than 142,000 members and participants, and provide over $12 million in annual charitable community impact. In Pennsylvania, River Crossing YMCA operates member branches in Doylestown, Fairless Hills, Newtown, Quakertown and Warminster in Bucks County; Allentown and Catasauqua in Lehigh County; Bethlehem, Easton, Nazareth and Pen Argyl in Northampton County. The Y also operates child care centers in Morrisville, New Britain, New Hope and Quakertown in Bucks County, as well as the Forks Education Center near the Easton branch in Northampton County. In Hunterdon County, NJ, the Y includes the Deer Path branch in Flemington, with child care centers in Annandale and Milford. Outdoor camp properties include Camp Carr in Clinton Township, NJ and Holland Outdoor Center in Holland, PA.

“As one YMCA, we truly are stronger together, committed to building upon the excellence of over 100 years of service to our local communities,” said Zane Moore, president/CEO of River Crossing YMCA. “Our members and participants will benefit from strengths and talents from both organizations with a greater variety of high-quality programs. Coming together also allows us to expand the reach of our mission-driven services and community impact. The leaders from both Ys are as excited as I am to begin this work together as one association.”

In September of 2023, following the retirement of President/CEO David Fagerstrom, Greater Valley YMCA entered a management agreement for YMCA of Bucks and Hunterdon Counties to provide executive leadership under President/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.

River Crossing YMCA (formerly YMCA of Bucks and Hunterdon Counties and Greater Valley YMCA) is a charitable, nonprofit organization committed to strengthening communities through membership and programs that foster youth development, healthy living and social responsibility for all. Annually, the Y serves over 142,000 members and participants at its twelve member branches, 13 early childhood centers, 20 summer camp locations, and 37 school age child care programs. River Crossing YMCA provides over $12 million of community impact annually in the form of financial assistance to individuals and families in need and free programming for veterans, cancer survivors, older adults and more.
