Charity Events

Channel Islands YMCA serves over 57,000 people annually, but our communities are continually evolving and they face new challenges every day. We require community support to meet and grow our services. A year-round approach to annual fundraising which includes special events helps us deliver on our cause by fostering a culture of philanthropy, building stronger community partnerships, and raising more charitable funds to serve and do more. Sponsors, in-kind donors, and participants are needed to make our charity events like galas, golf tournaments, and prayer breakfasts successful.
