Thank You

Thank you to those who joined us at the 5th anniversary Y For Youth luncheon, we are so thankful for your investment. From early education to career readiness, the Y gives all kids the opportunities they need to be successful. Because of you, youth are receiving the connection and resources they need to learn, grow and thrive.

About the Event

The Y For Youth Luncheon began in 2012 as a luncheon fundraiser, bringing the Bay Area community together to celebrate the essential role that the Y plays in helping youth reach their full potential, be inspired by youth program participants and the impact they are making in their community, and recognize our community investors. Donors invest in the Y's cause to strengthen community and support the YMCA of San Francisco's 2020 Vision to have the healthiest kids live in the Bay Area. 

Thanks to our community investors, the Y For Youth Luncheon has raised more than $1.8 million in the past four years. These funds further develop the Y’s youth programs throughout our 14 branches and 120 community sites in San Francisco, San Mateo, and Marin counties.
