My Y Week Broadens Participation in 2023 Annual Campaign
EVERETT, WA. February 24, 2023 – The YMCA of Snohomish County is launching its first-ever My Y Week from February 26 – March 4, 2023, partnering with community sponsors who are donating $1 every time a member a scans in throughout the week to boost participation and excitement surrounding the 2023 Annual Campaign.
This year’s My Y Week sponsors, LifeWise Health Plan of Washington, Optum, Fortive, Fluke, and Providence, share in the Y’s mission of creating a healthy, connected community for all, regardless of an individual’s ability to pay.
“Our community sponsors believe in the impact of the Y,” said Jennifer Willows, Chief Development Officer of YMCA of Snohomish County. “We are grateful for their generous support of Annual Campaign and their commitment to providing an opportunity for community members to give back in a way that’s personally meaningful.”
This year’s Annual Campaign goal of $1.3 million will be used to ensure access for all to YMCA programs, including swimming lessons, youth sports, and child care. Last year, the Y granted $2.1 million in financial assistance and funds raised this year will help close the gap.
“I’m honored and proud to work for a company that works closely with the Y and values the importance of a strong, healthy community,” said Kristin Meadows, YMCA Board of Trustees and CEO of LifeWise Health Plan of Washington. “It’s inspiring to join with other community leaders to support the Y where we find strength and resilience together.”
The YMCA of Snohomish County hopes the energy and excitement generated during My Y Week will create a ripple effect and inspire individuals to get involved in giving to the Y. The Y is launching $10 for 10, a campaign for members to donate $10 a month for 10 months, creating an opportunity for more people to invest in bringing critical programs and services to the local community.
“The $10 for 10 campaign is a great opportunity for members to give and make a big impact,” said Willows. “We want to involve as many people as possible because the power of the Y is maximized when our members and community members invest in our community.”
