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.   


University YMCA 2019 Annual Philanthropy Goal: $280,000 


The University 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 University Y will be able to impact the local community through various programs including:  


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.   


Summer Day Camp Scholarships and Meals: Your support gives over 900 youth life-changing summer camp experiences to build confidence and positive relationships through day camp scholarship, as well as free youth lunches, open to the community in the summer at Magnuson Park.  


Chronic Disease Prevention Programs: Your support gives individuals in their journey to reduce their risk of health problems related to chronic diseases, an opportunity to get back on track with their health.  Together, participants learn healthier options and make changes that can last a lifetime. 


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