Why Give To The YMCA of Honolulu?

We will always be here to serve our communities, in good times and bad.

The YMCA of Honolulu is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization founded in 1869. For over 140 years, the Y has worked side by side with our local communities through wars, economic downturns, social upheaval and health crises. The YMCA is committed and equipped to meet the changing needs and challenges of Oahu's families and communities.

Our youth and families need the YMCA, more than ever.

The Y is one of the largest providers of youth and teen programs in Hawaii (including after school programs and teen outreach/counseling). The demand for financial assistance and programs continues to grow.  In 2013, the Y assisted youth and families with almost $1,000,000 in financial assistance to participate in many Y programs and services.

We are strong fiscal managers.

Over ninety cents for each dollar contributed overall (90%) goes directly to provide financial assistance for those in need to participate in YMCA programs and to support Y programs. Most organizations’ overhead averages 18-25%. The Y is committed to keeping its administrative costs low, while still providing quality programs. The YMCA is debt-free and adequately staffed with well-trained professionals. We invest in our facilities, staff and programs to better serve our community.

We value our supporters.

At the Y, we consider donors part of our YMCA ohana. Many of our donors have supported our Y for their entire lives, and for several family generations. These relationships can only exist when there is a high level of trust, as our communities have for our YMCA.

Please give to the YMCA of Honolulu 2014 Annual Support Campaign.

Know that your gift does make a difference.
Mahalo for your support!
