The Y is more than fitness. It's more than healthy-living. It's more than swimming and racquetball and camping and childcare. Yes, we invented basketball. Yes, we created Father's Day. But do you know what else we've done? We've gotten kids off the streets; we've given people a home and a place where they feel like they can be whomever they want to be, do whatever they want to do, and learn and grow as individuals. We have provided members of our community right here on the Central Coast with a safe haven and the resources they need to live the life that they deserve.  

So we've told you about us, but who are you? You care about the well-being of your family, friends and neighbors. You value education, food security, disease prevention, and living a healthy life.

Let's create something great together. For a better you. For a better community. For a better tomorrow. 

The Y. For a better us.

We're not asking for much, we're just asking for your support.

Do you want to donate money that will have an immediate effect on the betterment of the lives and well-being of individuals in our community?

Do you have a used car that could help those in need, rather than sitting in your garage?

Do you want your name to be forever remembered through the YMCA endowment?

Do you want to involve your family and friends in raising funds for the YMCA?

Do you want your company to match your generous gift? Reach out to your local YMCA branch or your HR department to learn if this is something that your company provides. 

Do you want to contribute in any other way, shape or form? We accept everything from real property to stock. Contact our Chief Development Officer, Jill Rode, CFRE (805.569.1102 x23 or jill.rode@ciymca.org) to learn how your generous donation could impact our community.

We are governed by, and accountable to, an independent board of directors of community leaders and volunteers. Whatever you give, and whenever you give it, you can rest assured that your donation will be in good hands.
