Why Giving to the Y Matters

At the YMCA of The Palouse, we’re a community where all people, especially the young, are encouraged to develop their fullest potential in mind and body. With a focus on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, the Y inspires people of all ages to be active and healthy, educated and engaged, building a stronger community for us all.

As non-facility based YMCA, our cause is deeper than a pool and more active than a gym. The YMCA of the Palouse currently operates six locations of before and after-school programs as well as a Spring Break and Summer Day Camp in Pullman, Washington, partnering with with local school districts, charter schools, and community centers. We also partner with our local universities offering internships, practicums, and service learning opportunities for students. Serving nearly 300 youth, many families rely on our services with over 30% needing financial assistance with no child ever getting turned away due to financial hardship. Your financial gift plays a vital role in impacting youth and families and helps provide the means for our YMCA to grow and meet the needs of our community. We appreciate your support!
