Support Your Local Storyteller

It’s a fact that strong, stable, secure families form a solid foundation for the growth and success of all family members, particularly children in low-income areas.

At the YMCA of San Diego County, we are committed to reach out to kids and families regardless of income, to provide support by engaging in the Y. We are able to do so with the donations to our Annual Support Campaign, an annual fundraising effort to provide scholarship, inclusion and subsidized programs to our growing communities.

Consider supporting your local community and giving today.
