The Y relies on the generosity of corporate partners and sponsors to help maintain and expand service to the people who need us most. We work hard to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. We can’t do it alone.
- Event Sponsorship – Thanks to the monetary donations to YMCA Special events, such as Reaching for Stars, we are able to help many young people in Santa Barbara by sustaining our four programs.
- Annual Partnership Opportunities – Thanks to monetary gifts to the Annual Campaign, the Y is able to provide scholarships for membership and programs as well as to expand quality services in our region. Recognition for such gifts occurs at our branches and to our membership.
- Special Partnership Opportunities – Thanks to monetary contributions, corporate sponsors fund programs, such as Youth and Family Services. Unlike other branches, Youth and Family Services does not have memberships that pay for the facility and staffing. YFS programs are supported through donations, grants, corporate sponsors and when available, government funding.
