THE Y FOR
We focus our work in three key areas, because nurturing the potential of kids, helping people live healthier, and supporting our neighbors are fundamental to strengthening communities.
Annual Support Campaign
CHANGE A LIFE...ONE STORY AT A TIME!
The Annual Support Campaign is a volunteer-driven effort to raise the funds needed to provide program support and financial assistance to children, families and active older adults in the downtown San Diego Community. To ensure that no one is denied a chance to participate because of the inability to pay, we truly need your help.
As a benefactor, you are ensuring that everyone is given the opportunity to benefit from programs that teach principles that will positively impact their lives and our community.
Pledge to Make a Difference!
Our promise is to provide exceptional programs for EVERYONE! Your generosity helps ensure this promise, and your partnership is vital to the Downtown YMCA's commitment to finding solutions, transforming lives and creating lasting community impact.
- Make a pledge and split your gift into ten monthly payments!
