New For You At Rancho Family YMCA
Help Us Ensure Access for All
As a leading nonprofit, our Y is making a difference in the lives of 8,446 community members annually in the Rancho Peñasquitos community through our programs and services. Thanks to generous donations to our annual fundraising campaign, we are opening doors and changing lives. When you invest in the Y, your dollars will directly benefit kids and families in under-served communities and provide scholarships to fulfill our mission to serve all people regardless of their ability to pay. The need is urgent and growing…and it can’t be met without you! Please give to Rancho Family YMCA. The more we raise, the more people we can help.
OUR GOAL: $152,000
