Hey everyone! I have been working for the YMCA of San Francisco for almost 11 years now... time flies. It has been quite a journey and I have discovered that working for the Y is more than just a job for me. I believe in the cause of the YMCA and I understand how my work contributes to our ultimate goal of strengthening the foundations of community.
I live and work in the Richmond District and I am inspired by the number of families whose lives are enriched by our after school programs, family programs and camps. I see the individuals and families that we help with providing financial assistance for membership so they can stay healthy and feel a sense of community. I hear the countless stories of how the Y has changed the lives of so many whether they are staff, members or program participants.
By donating to the Richmond District YMCA, you are not giving to a faceless charity or foundation. You are making a direct contribution to an organization that has great meaning in the lives of so many people and has a profound effect on the quality of life in our neighborhood. Please join me in making a commitment to a cause that I care so much about and help the Y and our community grow together!

THE IMPACT OF YOUR GIFT
We combat social ills by supporting the very foundations of community through Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility. Your gift helps us have a meaningful impact in Strengthening the Foundations of Community:
Adults who work out at our Y with our personal trainers aren't just looking better on the beach. They are:
- Reducing stress
- Feeling happier
- Building relationships
- Having more energy for their family
- Staying healthy
Youth who attend LEAP (Learning and Enrichment Afterschool Program) aren't just in a safe place afterschool while their parents work to provide for their family. They are:
- Becoming more resilient
- Making friends and becoming a part of their community
- Learning to give back and contribute
- Building social and life skills that will last them a lifetime
Seniors who volunteer for our Foodbank aren’t just supplying food to individuals and families in need. They are:
- Staying active
- Feeling needed and valuable
- Staying connected to a community
- Finding purpose
Each of these impacts are small in and of themselves, but together they strengthen the social fabric that makes this the kind of community we dream of for ourselves and our families. Please support the Y in making this kind of impact possible today. Click on the DONATE button on the upper right corner of this page.
