A STRONG INVESTMENT GUARANTEES A STRONG FUTURE

Since 1972, YMCA of Silicon Valley Endowment Fund has provided long-term support to the Y's mission areas of Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility.

Your gift provides lasting support for the Y to remain accessible to everyone - regardless of their ability to pay. The investment of our Y’s endowment is crucial to meeting our future needs. This may take the shape of increased financial assistance, significant new initiatives, or general operating support.

Your gift to the endowment is invested strategically by the YMCA of Silicon Valley. The Y's Investment Committee guides the direction and growth of the endowment funds. 

If you're ready to support YMCA quality programs and services that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all, contact Simon Chiu, Vice President of Financial Development, at 408-351-6427 or by email at simon.chiu@ymcasv.org.
