Give to the Y


At the YMCA of Greater Whittier, we understand what makes our community great, and we know what it needs to become even greater.

Make a Donation

After all, we have spent the last 100 years partnering with the community to build a better you, a better future and a better us.

As a nonprofit community leader we are dedicated to providing community benefit and making a positive impact. We could not deliver the mission of our organization without the generosity of our donors, volunteers and community partners.

Each year, the Annual Campaign raises critical funds to support members and others in our community! Gifts to the Annual Campaign do everything from keeping our lights and pools pristine at our branches and YMCA Camp Arbolado to securing funds for financial assistance. Inviting other to join and support our cause ensures that that no one’s financial situation is a barrier to engaging here at the Y.
