Annual Campaign

ANNUAL CAMPAIGN

Help Us Ensure Access for All

As a leading nonprofit, our Y is making a difference in the lives of 12,122 community members annually throughout Kearny Mesa, Clairemont Mesa and Tierrasanta 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 Toby Wells YMCA. The more we raise, the more people we can help.

OUR GOAL: $140,000
