Giving to the Y


View more My Y Stories on our Youtube Channel

With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, strengthening communities is our cause. At the Y, we believe that lasting personal and social change happens when we all work together. Every day we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to be healthy, confident, connected, and secure.

When you give to the Y, you are funding life-changing programs that help tens of thousands of children, adults, and families in Snohomish County to learn, grow and thrive.

Your support helps the Y deliver on our commitment:

  • To nurture the potential of youth through building confidence at camp, academic enrichment in safe afterschool programs, or foundational skills and values in our child care programs.
  • To improve the nation’s health and well-being through combating obesity and chronic disease by providing the support and resources people need to make positive change.
  • To give back and support our neighbors by empowering people with the resources to improve their lives and connect and contribute to the community, such as with job training, housing, newcomer services, and opportunities to advocate for social change.
  • To offer programs and services to children, adults and families who need financial assistance.

Ways to Give

Cash donation: your cash donation can be designated to support a specific branch or program, or simply be applied to the greatest need - it's your choice. Why not sponsor a week of summer camp for a child who would otherwise not be able to enjoy that great childhood summer memory?

Planned giving: Planned giving is the way to support our community's future. Contributions to our Endowment Fund ensure that the Y's good work will continue for generations to come.
