GIVE

WHY GIVING TO THE Y MATTERS

At the Skagit Valley Family YMCA, we’re creating positive community change through relationships by empowering the mind, body, and spirit of ALL. We focus on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, and we inspire people of all ages to be active and healthy, educated and engaged, and engaged in building a stronger community for us all.

When you join the Y, your membership fees support a wide range of functions, including our YMCA Oasis program, financial assistance programs, childcare scholarships, and more. However, if you are looking for ways to go above and beyond in giving back to the Y, there are a number of ways to do so! Your gifts will support the mission-driven work we do every day, including helping area youth thrive in our childcare programs, providing shelter and care for Oasis teens, expanding our healthy living programs, and much more.

Ways to Support the Skagit Valley Family YMCA

Support the Don Gerrior Memorial Fund

Don Gerrior was a cherished member of our Y, and his passion for the pool was evident every time he stepped in the water. Don was always one of the first swimmers in the pool every morning for 40 years. He was a big part of our Y family, and he will be dearly missed.

We are excited to announce the Don Gerrior Memorial Fund in his honor. This scholarship will support access to the pool and water safety programs for children. May Don’s legacy continue by inspiring the next generation of swimmers. 

Our goal is to raise $5,000 for the fund by January 2022. The Skagit Y will also provide another $5,000 in matching funds. We hope that you and other close friends and family of Don consider a gift in support.
