Give to the Y
For many children, families and adults in our communities, the Y is the safe and nurturing place they turn to for values-based programs and activities that provide encouragement and support in helping them reach their highest potential. More than a gym or pool, the Y is a cause - dedicated to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. With programs from athletics to advocacy, dance classes to disease prevention, and cycling to child care, the Y doesn’t just strengthen individuals, we strengthen communities.
YOU can make a difference in the life of an underserved preschool child, an idle teenager, a deserving single parent or an isolated senior adult with a tax-deductible gift to the YMCA of Superior California. No matter how big or small, every dollar helps ensure that invaluable YMCA programs such as swim lessons, child care, senior wellness activities and more, are accessible to those who need them most.
Because opportunity shouldn't be a privilege. Together, we ensure it's a right.
The Y ensures it's a right
