Everyone should have access to programs and services that will enable them to be the best version of themselves. Our Annual Campaign is your opportunity to make an impact. 100% of funds collected during this campaign support our financial assistance program, so in-need individuals and families can enroll in Y programs at a reduced rate, and funding for free programs in the communities that need it most.
Annual Charity Events
At the Y, we know it is our mission to help those in need. We are committed to building a stronger community through special fundraising events that allow us to strengthen resources and give back to those who need it the most in our local communities.
100% of your donation will help young people achieve their potential, empower people of all ages to lead healthier lives and strengthen the bonds of community in Orange County. Our goal is to turn no one away due to their inability to pay for our life-changing programs.
