YMCA Annual Campaign Events:

HELP THE Y HELP OTHERS IN OUR COMMUNITY

At the Stanwood-Camano YMCA alone, this year’s campaign will raise over $100,000 to provide program support and much-needed dollars for financial assistance for families and youth who could not otherwise participate in YMCA programs.

93 cents of every dollar raised goes directly into our programs and services. This is why the YMCA of Snohomish County is ranked among the top tier of charities nationally. All proceeds of this tournament will go towards the campaign.
