The YMCA of Orange County works with our neighbors to ensure everyone, regardless of age, income or background has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. Thanks to generous donors, we are able to fulfill this mission through low cost programs and direct financial assistance for families in need. 100% of all dollars donated are invested into programs serving children and families in our community.
Our Annual Campaign runs from early February to mid-March each year, raising funds for our Financial Assistance and subsidized programs for marginalized populations. You can support our Annual Campaigns by attending an event, starting your own online fundraiser, or becoming a volunteer.
