Y for Youth Gala

Since 2012, Y for Youth has brought the Bay Area together to be inspired by youth and their community impact, celebrate the essential role that the YMCA of San Francisco plays in youth reaching their full potential, and recognize the Y's community investors. Donors invest in the Y's cause to strengthen community and support our shared strategic vision for the Bay Area to be home to the healthiest kids in our nation. 

Thanks to our community investors, Y for Youth has raised more than $3.1 million in the past six years. These funds have deeply developed the Y’s youth programs throughout San Francisco, San Mateo and Marin counties.
