Giving Tuesday 2023 - South Sound YMCA

Giving Tuesday 2023

On November 28, 2023, people all around the world are coming together to tap into the power of human connection and strengthen communities and change our world. Will you be one of them?

Our Goal This Year:


Dollars raised on Giving Tuesday will support our partnership with Olympia School District’s Mentor Program and other critical youth and family programs and resources in our community.


The OSD Student Mentor Program bridges the gap between BIPOC and underrepresented students and their communities, providing academic enrichment opportunities, socioemotional support, and college and career preparation.


In the Y, we are proud to partner with OSD to ensure students have the resources and supports to thrive.


“I appreciate the Y’s commitment to students in our community. It takes all of us, working together, to foster safe, equitable, spaces in our community where all kids can thrive.”

– Antonio McClinon, Student Mentor Coordinator
