The Yakima Family YMCA has been helping local kids and families for over 100 years. We are committed to making quality programs available to people from all walks of life. All day, every day, helping people is what we do. We work hard to make membership and program fees affordable. Even so, we know that during difficult times some families need financial assistance.
Our annual Partner with Youth Campaign raises the necessary funds for us to continue our good work in the community every day throughout the year. Every dollar we raise is used to cover a portion of program costs and financial assistance that keeps YMCA programs available to local kids and families who need them most. To continue these programs, we need your help. By giving to our Partner with Youth Campaign, you can make sure that every boy and girl and their family can participate in our life-enriching programs regardless of their ability to pay. With your generous gift, you can help us give kids the power of values, so that they can grow up strong and become productive adults.
From $5 to $50,000, every gift makes a difference in the life of a child or a family.
