Give to the Y Online!

Each year at the YMCA of Orange County, 6,650 youth participate in Y sports, 6,500 are served through after school care, 4,560 through day camp, 400 through resident camp and 320 are served through education and leadership programs.  This is made possible largely due to our generous supporters who see that there is a need for these programs in our communities and help reinforce our cause which is backed by our commitment to strive to keep programs open for all regardless of social or economic status.

Vote Zoe for President!

From early education to career readiness, the Y gives all kids the opportunities they need to one day be president (if they want—no pressure).

Zoe isn’t just one kid, she’s every child who deserves a shot at greatness. By supporting Zoe, you’re helping kids in your community gain the skills and confidence they need to reach their potential, from birth to president (or astronaut, or doctor or playwright) and beyond.
