Ways to Give

Philanthropy in Action

The YMCA is now…as it has always been…a place of possibility and promise for all. Unfortunately, in times when the true power of “us” is unknown to many and our bonds are fraying, we must do even more to enhance our human connections. Fortunately, where some see obstacles, we see opportunities. Each year, our community faces new challenges that create a greater need for the work we do.


The Y experience is full of small moments that lead to BIG transformations:
Grass stains on your daughter’s jersey after her first goal, morning coffee and laughs in the lobby with friends, the feeling of sweat as you push past the finish line, the smell of dirt from the preschool garden, the sound of children splashing as summer begins…

Everyone, just like you, deserves to have these moments in life. A thriving YMCA makes it happen. Your generosity makes it POSSIBLE.
Banners of Thanks recognize you and your gift of $1,000 or more. Our COMMUNITY becomes stronger when we support each other. Display your commitment to a stronger Y, a stronger community, in the YMCA branches and Camp Reed for all to see.

  • Contact Jesse Zumbro, 509 720 5621 Financial Development Director to learn how you can be recognized with a Banner of Thanks.

Banner Recognition Program

An endowment to the YMCA ensures our capacity to strengthen the very foundations of this community for years and generations to come. Regardless of the programs in the future, we will be there to meet the need through our commitment to always nurture the potential of youth and teens, to help improve our community’s health and well-being, and to support and give back to our neighbors.

Some have chosen to support the YMCA through:

  • An outright gift

Camp Reed Mini Campers

What is it you remember most about YMCA Camp Reed? Was it sharing during Sticks Ceremony around the campfire at the end of the week, Critter Talk, Chapel or fun with campers and staff? We know Camp Reed has touched many lives and it is a unique experience that has a lasting impact. Now you have the opportunity to pass on these positive encounters for many more campers in the years ahead.

Our goal is to ensure the future of Camp Reed by building a designated endowment fund to support the powerful work of camp. As a beneficiary of the Camp Reed experience, you are uniquely qualified to recognize the potential that camp can offer to many in the years to come. Your support strengthens the foundation of Camp Reed by building long-range financial stability and ensuring that countless children can just be kids for a life-changing week at camp.

Contributions can be made in two ways: a gift today, or a future gift or both will be placed in the Camp Reed Endowment. Your endowment gift provides lasting resources by preserving the original gift intact and using the interest gained each year for either camperships or infrastructure improvements.

For more information please contact Carly “Calypso” Garras, Camp Reed Executive Director at 509 720 5631.
