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.
Make a Donation
We believe a strong community can only be achieved when we invest in our kids, our health, and our neighbors. Our programs, services, and initiatives enable youth to realize their potential; offer families ways to have fun together; empower people to be healthier in mind, body, and spirit; welcome and embrace newcomers; and help foster social responsibility. Beyond our gym and aquatics center, the Y also provides quality early childhood education, afterschool programs and camps, and support for teens including housing, meals, drop-in activities and outreach through our Oasis Teen Services. Give today to help us achieve our mission to create positive community change through relationships by empowering the mind, body, and spirit of ALL!
Support Safety Around Water by donating to 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.
