Nancy Powers Memorial Scholarship

In honor of the Dow Bay Area Family YMCA’s devoted employee and friend for over 45 years, friends and family of Nancy Powers have donated and inspired a Memorial Scholarship in Nancy’s name.

Nancy Powers cared deeply for each of our members and embodied the Y’s dedication to serve our communities. A friend to many of our Senior Members, this scholarship will provide 12 months of membership, free of charge, to one Senior 65 years old and older to promote healthy and active older adults.
