For over a century, the YMCA of Greater Whittier has stood as a beacon of hope, support, and transformation in the community. With a history spanning 107 years, our commitment to creating a better future for all has been unwavering. Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving, offers a unique opportunity for individuals and organizations to contribute to this enduring legacy. It’s a day when the spirit of generosity and community service shines brightest, reflecting the core values of the YMCA. 

The Power of Community Partnerships 

The YMCA of Greater Whittier’s impact is deeply rooted in its partnerships with local organizations, schools, municipalities, and businesses. These collaborations are vital in addressing the diverse challenges faced by our community. By working together, we can create more effective solutions, reach a wider audience, and make a more significant impact. These partnerships are not just about sharing resources; they’re about sharing a vision for a stronger, healthier, and more connected community. 

The Annual Campaign: A Lifeline for Many 

Giving Tuesday is a crucial part of our Annual Campaign, a fundraising initiative that is essential to our mission. The funds raised are more than just numbers; they represent hope, opportunity, and access. These contributions go towards: 

  • Maintaining Facilities: Ensuring that our facilities remain safe, welcoming, and equipped to meet the community’s needs. 
  • Providing Financial Assistance: Making sure that our programs and services are accessible to everyone, regardless of their financial situation. This assistance can be life-changing, offering children, adults, and families the chance to participate in programs they otherwise couldn’t afford. 
  • Supporting Community Programs: From youth sports to senior wellness programs, the funds raised help sustain a wide range of initiatives that benefit the community.

Philanthropy is at the heart of the YMCA of Greater Whittier. It’s through the generosity of donors, volunteers, and partners that we can continue to drive positive change. Every donation, big or small, contributes to the betterment of our community.
