For a better Us

In addition to making a one-time cash or pledge donation over a period of time, there are other ways you can help.

Donate Your Car

We’re always looking for creative ways to fund our Open Doors Scholarship to help those in need, and the car donation program is just one of many. Through V-DAC, the Y can accept car donations and the process is simple:

Enter your vehicle information online

Mail in your paperwork

Schedule your free pick up

Receive a tax receipt typically within 60 days

For any donated vehicle, the Y will receive 60-80% of the net sales proceeds. Donations require no costs to the donor and may be tax-deductible. Additionally, V-DAC accepts all types of vehicles (running or not), including cars, trucks, motorcycles, RV’s, boats, airplanes, and farm equipment. If you don’t have a proper title certificate, V-DAC will help you with any problems you may have.

For more information regarding the Channel Islands YMCA’s Car Donation program through V-DAC, email Jill Rode, at or call 805.569.1103 ext. 23.

Stocks or Property

To donate sock to the Y, follow these simple steps:

Initiate the Stock Transfer – Securities can be gifted through electronic transfer where your broker transfers shares to the YMCA or by physically mailing the paper certificates to the Y.  For both, contact your broker to initiate the transfer.

Send the Securities to the Y

In-Kind Donations

A great way to help Y activities is for individuals, families and companies to make in-kind donations. These donations of materials, services, or cash will allow us to stretch our dollars even further.
