Let's Create Something Great Together

The Y is more than fitness. It’s more than healthy living. It’s more than swimming and racquetball and camping and child care. Yes, we invented basketball. Yes, we created Father’s Day. But do you know what else we’ve done? We’ve given people a place where they feel accepted. We have provided members of our community with a safe haven and the resources they need to thrive.

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

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 your company to match your generous gift? Reach out to 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 at 805.569.1103 x23 or jill.rode@ciymca.org to learn how your generous donation could impact our community.
