The YMCA of Greater Seattle has a vision that one day, all kids, families, adults and seniors in the Greater Seattle Area will have equitable opportunities to improve their health, well-being and reach their full potential. Together at 13 Y branches, two overnight camps and hundreds of program sites across King and south Snohomish County, we’re tackling our community’s most urgent needs – giving people hope for a better future, and the means to achieve it.  


Sammamish Community 2019 Annual Philanthropy Goal: $180,000 


The Sammamish Community Y is working to meet Seattle’s most urgent needs by creating opportunities for everyone to improve health and reach their full potential. With your support, the Sammamish Community Y will be able to impact the local community through various programs including:  


Highland Garden Afterschool Program 

Your support gives teens the opportunity to give back and become mentors to younger kids through afterschool enrichment programs. Staff and teen volunteers help students with homework, lead arts and crafts projects and play games.  


Water Safety Programs 

Your support teaches children and adults how to feel comfortable in the water. These programs develop lifelong skills and build confidence around water without worry of the cost of lessons. Water safety programs are focused serving communities of color where drowning rates are highest. 


Youth and Family Behavioral Health Services 

Your support provides behavioral health services for youth and families in need of support in a relaxed, familiar setting at the Y.   


Y Programs for All 

Your support provides families access to day camp, education programs and wellness classes regardless of their financial situation.
