Give to the Y
It’s a fact that strong, stable, secure families form a solid foundation for the growth and success of all family members, particularly children in low-income areas. At the Y, strengthening community through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility is our cause.
The Y is a powerful association of men, women and children committed to bringing about lasting personal and social change. With a focus on nurturing the potential of every child and teen, improving the nation’s health and well-being and providing opportunities to give back and support neighbors, the Y enables youth, adults, families and communities to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.
We are committed to reaching out to kids and families regardless of income, to provide support by engaging in the Y. Money raised through our fundraising efforts ensures that everyone who needs the Y is afforded the opportunity to take advantage of our services and facilities. As we continue to enhance and expand our family programming, our family membership base continues to grow, increasing the need for financial support.
Funding Our Strategic Vision
The county of San Diego is evolving. To ensure that the YMCA continues to meet the needs of our communities, we intend to double our impact by 2025. We are currently serving almost 400,000 people annually; nearly 1 in every 8 San Diegans. By 2025, our vision is to touch the lives of 800,000 people each year.
- To serve growing neighborhoods within our county, several potential communities have been targeted for a new, full-service YMCA. We are also committed to enhancing existing Ys to best engage the our communities.
- The YMCA’s Annual Campaign helps to provide access for all and ensures that our programs are affordable and available to the most vulnerable populations in our community – whether they are children, seniors or anyone else in between.
- We will strengthen our endowment as an investment in the future for scholarships, facilities and more.
