IMPACT SKAGIT

Impact-Skagit-Website-Header

Skagit Valley is a wonderful place to live, work, and play. We strive to reflect these same qualities across all programs of the Skagit Y, wearing our namesake with pride. Yet our community still faces challenges that will require bold solutions. We are especially aware of the barriers faced by our families, youth and children. At the Skagit Y, we are working hard to dismantle these hurdles for our neighbors by investing in kids, empowering youth, and cultivating wellness for all.  

  • We invest in kids for a brighter tomorrow. 
  • We empower youth to be the heroes of their own journey. 
  • We cultivate wellness of mind, body and spirit at every phase of life. 

Impact Skagit Campaign Goals:

  • 400 new membership units 
  • $40,000 in community giving 

When you join the Y, you ensure healthy living for yourself and for others. When you give to the Y, you give to your community. Join us to IMPACT SKAGIT.

Give to the Y

Social Responsibility: EMPOWER YOUTH

Young people should be the the heroes of their own journey. The Y’s Oasis Teen Shelter provides youth ages 13-17 and their families with safe, supportive, and confidential support. Through a range of services from crisis intervention and shelter to arts, music and mealsOasis takes a holistic approach to empowering young people to thrive.

Youth Development: INVEST IN KIDS

Investment in our kids today ensures a brighter tomorrow. Our Y provides high-quality childcare across 9 sites for children ages 1 to 12 years old around Skagit County. We partner with other providers and offer financial assistance to make childcare accessible and affordable to all families.

Healthy Living: CULTIVATE WELLNESS

Everyone deserves a healthy mind, body and spirit. The Y cultivates programs that promote personal growth, encourage active lifestyles, and foster multi-generational connections across our diverse community. Whether it be our seniors in the pool or our kids on the court, we provide opportunity for wellness at every phase of life.

Don Gerrior Memorial Fund

Another way to support Healthy Living is 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.

The Don Gerrior Memorial Fund will support access to the pool and water safety programs for children.
