TOGETHER, WE CAN BUILD A BETTER US
SNOQUALMIE VALLEY YMCA
Annual Fund Drive 2017 GOAL: $78,600
We are nearing the end of our Annual Fund Drive, but we still need your help. In just a few short weeks, our community has donated more than $60,000 to provide critical programs and services to the Snoqualmie Valley. But we still need your support to reach our goal of $78,600 so hundreds of youth, families, and seniors have opportunities to reach their fullest potential, build community, improve their health, and get the care and support they need. Without your gift, these programs and services would not be possible.
Please, donate today to ensure everyone has a place to belong by April 1. Every penny makes an impact right here at the Snoqualmie Valley YMCA.
When you donate to your YMCA, you’re investing in your community. Your support provides opportunities for people to improve their health and build a sense of community, for our most vulnerable young people to get the care and support they need, and for kids to develop into smart, resilient adults.
How far your dollars can go:
$100: Provides nutritious summer meals for 13 children and adults.
$250: Two adults learn healthy habits through healthy living programs.
$500: A school-age youth has a safe, caring place to go after school.
$1,000: Twenty teens build positive relationships with mentors through service projects.
$2,500: One homeless teen has a safe place for eight months.
