2019 Annual Campaign
Everyone is welcome at the Santa Monica Family YMCA. Diversity is celebrated and our common ground promoted. No member of our community regardless of age, income, or background is ever turned away due to inability to pay.
6000 individuals of all ages are expected to participate in our programs in 2019, Over 2500 members of our community will receive financial assistance to be members of our Y or participate in youth programs in 2019, Over $300,000 will be allocated to subsidize our “mission-vital” programs” so that fees can be maintained at affordable levels to maximize participation and community impact. The total costs to operate many of these programs exceed reasonable revenue goals, so subsidy is essential to maintain them. There are many in our community who find the Y affordable, but there are many who need our help as the weekly requests for assistance had not diminished.
A gift to our Y ensures the continuation of our cause driven programs such as diabetes prevention, child care, after school enrichment, day and residence camps, and teen programs: youth and government, model nations, youth classes and sports.
Your gift will make your Santa Monica community better by helping us to reach more people through life-changing programs and services for:
Youth Development: All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, under the guidance of caring adults who believe in their potential. We see every interaction with young people as an opportunity for learning and development – all grounded in the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
Healthy Living: We help people and families build and maintain healthy habits for spirit, mind and body in their everyday lives. By helping kids, adults, families and older adults from all walks of life improve their well-being, we build a stronger community.
Social Responsibility: With our welcoming and inclusive spirit, we bring together people from all backgrounds, and support those who need us most. We take on the most urgent needs in our community and inspire service in return. We demonstrate the power of what can be achieved by giving back together.
Our Y is strong because of the continued generous contributions of our community leaders, volunteers and supporters like you. Help the Y reach our goal of $145,000 for 2019 by making a donation to our annual campaign. Every gift makes a difference! We invite you to live our cause and be a part of helping the Santa Monica Family YMCA strengthen our community.
