How We Give Back
Here at the YMCA of San Diego County, one of the top non-profit organizations in the country, our cause is strengthening community through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.
By empowering everyday people who are impassioned about helping their community, we are able to make positive personal and societal changes that stand the test of time.
Our team, along with the support of our amazing donors and volunteers, works hard to nuture our communities' youth by providing them and their families the opportunity to learn, grow, and be healthy in a safe and supportive environment — regardless of their background or socioeconomic status.
Our Strategic Vision for the Future
Currently, almost 400,000 people participate in our programs or utilize our services — that's nearly one in every eight San Diegans! Learn more about our efforts in our 2021-2022 Annual Report. (coming soon)
But our communities are continually evolving and facing new challenges every day. That's why we intend to double our impact by 2025, touching the lives of more than 800,000 people every year. Here's how:
- We are planning to build a new, full-service YMCA facility, with several expanding neighborhoods being considered as potential locations.
- All of our existing facilities are scheduled to be enhanced and improved to better serve their communities.
- The Annual Campaigns we hold each year will help provide access to these facilities and programs by ensuring they are affordable and available to the most vulnerable populations in San Diego.
- We will strengthen our endowment as an investment in the future for scholarships, facilities and more.
With your help, the funds we raise will ensure that everyone in San Diego has the chance to be healthy, confident, connected and secure — both now and into the future.
