Our Y community unites each year to raise funds for future philanthropic efforts. Our aim is to leave no stone unturned in finding ways to help people. Our goal this year is to raise $25,000 from November 1 through November 22.

We are dedicated to transforming lives in the Portland/Vancouver Metro area, whether by creating a sense of belonging for children at camp, assisting the unhoused, tackling social isolation, encouraging healthy lifestyles, or promoting drowning prevention. Our focus is on fostering connections and making positive changes in our communities, guided by love and compassion.

At the YMCA of Columbia-Willamette, we're more than just a gym or a childcare service. From drowning prevention to hunger relief, our mission is to put the Christian principles of love, respect, honesty, responsibility, and service into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.

We welcome all who welcome all!

From the child who finally feels seen at camp, to the family in need seeking help, just about everyone has a YMCA-story. By becoming a part of our team at the Y, you'll be joining a community of like-minded individuals who are passionate about making a difference. Our philanthropic family of staff, volunteers, and members wake up every day with a shared goal: to create a better world. Come along side us and start your journey towards a more fulfilling life today.
