The Y. For a better us.™
Why Give to the Y?
We have an extraordinary opportunity to ensure a brighter future for our community, but we must take action today, and only your support will make it possible.
When you give to the South Sound YMCA, your generosity reaches children, families, and seniors in Thurston County.
Your gift will help people achieve their potential, empower people of all ages to lead healthier lives, and strengthen the bonds of our community.
Together, we’ll take on many of the greatest challenges facing our young people, our health, and our community.
Investing in our kids, our health, and our neighbors
At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Strong communities don't just happen, they're the result of steady leadership and stewardship of strong values. That's the Y. We make a difference by focusing on three key areas: youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. By investing in our kids, our health and our neighbors, the South Sound YMCA ensures that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to thrive.
Youth Development: The Y is closing the academic achievement gap with programs that improve students' educational readiness, engagement and outcomes, while helping them grow emotionally and physically. Programs like Power Scholars Academy, Early Achievers, Summer Camp, and Before and After school care are helping to build our future leaders.
Healthy Living: We are providing programs and activities that promote wellness, reduce risk of disease and help people reclaim their health through programs like LiveStrong, Actively Changing Together--a childhood obesity program, Diabetes Prevention, Family Time, Senior Fitness and Youth Sports.
Social Responsibility: Today, Y volunteers and our fans remain at the heart of our organization. It's only through the support of volunteers and public and private donors that we are able to serve more people and deliver on our cause to strengthen community.
