2022 Annual Giving

The YMCA of Greater Seattle’s mission has long focused on helping young people live their healthiest lives to reach their full potential in spirit, mind, and body. Over the last two years, the loss of normalcy caused by Covid-19 created a lack of structure, routine, and social isolation, which coupled with a national reckoning with social injustice and racial disparities contributed to dramatic declines in health and well-being for youth. This is especially true among Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC), and other historically marginalized youth.

All Kids Deserve Equal Opportunities

There is great need in our communities, and we need your help. Join us this year to advance equity and justice for all through whole person health for young people.
