Each year, contributions from donors like you help our Y provide assistance and resources to our neighborhoods and community members. Each day brings new challenges to our communities, creating a greater need for YMCA of Silicon Valley programs.


Safety is a key element of summer fun. Both the Y's swim lessons and safety around water programs offer youth valuable safety lessons, and much more. Consider enrolling in one or both of the programs to keep you and your family safe this summer.

#ByTheNumbers is a reflection on the Y’s impact over the past year, and a standard to meet and exceed as we continue to strengthen our community. The Y was founded on the principal of serving the most significant community needs, and this year was no exception. Though unquestionably a challenging year, with the support and effort our neighbors, donors, and partners the Y emerged stronger. Kid, families and seniors were fed nutritious meals, essential workers received childcare support, youth studying at home stayed on track with distance learning support, and Y staff were able to emotionally and physically support the most vulnerable, lonely, members of our community. Take a deeper look with #ByTheNumbers.
