We have an extraordinary opportunity
to ensure a brighter future for our community—but we must take action today,
and only your support will make it possible.
When you give to the Everett Family
YMCA, your generosity reaches children, families and seniors throughout
Snohomish County. Your gift will help young people achieve their
potential, empower people of all ages to lead healthier lives, and strengthen
the bonds of community in your own neighborhood.
Together, we will take on many of the
greatest challenges facing our young people, our health and our communities
across Everett by:
Teaching families how to live healthier, together through our Youth Obesity
Helping cancer survivors find renewed strength and health
through our LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA Program
Inspire lasting changes and healthier habits for at-risk adults
through our Diabetes
Prevention Program at the YMCA
Enable someone with Parkinson's disease to reduce their symptoms
through our Pedaling for
Every gift makes a difference.
Everyone has a role to play. Together, we can build a better us.
The Y is arguably the most powerful social institution this country has ever known. The Y helped found the USO (United Service Organization) and the Peace Corps was patterned after a YMCA program. If you've ever gone to a public library, taken a night course, or celebrated Father's Day, your life has been touched by the work of the Y. If you've ever played basketball or volleyball, or gone camping, you've enjoyed the work of the Y.
Here in Snohomish County, the Y has been serving and strengthening our communities since 1901. We've been here through economic booms and busts, wartime and peace, and social upheavals both subtle and life-changing. Our movement is made up of people of all ages and from every walk of life, all working side-by-side to ensure that everyone, regardless of gender, income or background, has the opportunity to live life to its fullest.
We value caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility, and everything we do stems from this. Our staff and volunteers are kids, parents, grandparents, neighbors, and local leaders who are all personally committed to understanding what our neighborhoods need. Together, we use our knowledge to develop stronger, more integrated communities, provide support for people and families, and promote positive change overall.
