The Y has been a Special place to me since I worked there. Part of my job was to identify grants that some our programs would be eligible for. The first step in this process was learning about the programs that the University YMCA offers. From that point on I was convinced that supporting the Y was the easiest way to bring up my North Seattle community. The Y offers high quality programming to everyone by providing scholarships to sponsor those who cannot afford. Our support goes directliy to programming with only a minimal amount used for administrative costs. This deal is the best bang for your buck when it comes to making a donation that will have a positive impact on people in need in your neighborhood.
Thank you for your time and donation,
Addressing Critical Local Needs
Developing Smart, Resilient Youth
Your support prepares the next generation of kids to be successful adults.
Thanks to the support of caring donors like you, the Y is able to provide programs for our community’s youth from birth to graduation and beyond—no matter what their families’ financial situations may be.
In Y programs, kids develop the courage to try new things, the resilience to try again when they fail, social skills to make friends and keep them, and values like compassion, generosity, honesty, respect for diversity, and social responsibility.
Enhancing People's Health & Building Community
No one knows kids and communities better than the Y.
The Y is where community happens. In neighborhoods and towns across King County, the local Y is where people of all ages come together to laugh, learn, exercise, and build their sense of collective purpose and connectedness.
From the banking executive to the stay-at-home parent, the retired teacher to the cancer survivor, we give everyone the opportunity to live healthier lives, with donor-funded scholarships and sliding scale fees to ensure that the Y opportunities are open to all.
Caring for Vulnerable Young People
You drive the Y’s work to help youth and young people who need us the most.
As a charitable organization, the Y is deeply committed to serving the greater good. And, thanks to you, we are making a profound difference in people’s lives. We provide thousands of meals to hungry kids, safe, stable environments for foster youth and their families, and positive role models and opportunities to learn and work for at-risk and homeless youth.
Your support makes our community stronger. Please join me and give today.
