Annual Campaign Changes Lives
At the Y, our Cause is to strengthen the foundations of community. We do this through membership and programs; however, while these fees allow us to cover operations and overhead, they do not cover all the costs to support vital community programs. To ensure no one is denied a chance to participate because of inability to pay, we truly need your help.
Your participation in our campaigns and sponsorship programs are vital in continuing the YMCA of Honolulu’s commitment to these projects. It allows the YMCA to better serve more communities on the island and reach more people on Oahu. We thank you for your help in these areas:
The YMCA of Honolulu is an organization exempt from federal income taxes under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, so you may deduct your contributions under Section 170 of the Code.
The YMCA Federal Tax ID # is 99-0073533.
The YMCA of Honolulu continues to receive a four star rating from Charity Navigator, the highest rating possible. There are only 10 organizations out of 7,000 non-profits in the state to achieve this and the YMCA of Honolulu is in the top 25% of national organizations. Charity Navigator helps donors make intelligent giving decisions by providing in-depth, objective ratings and analysis of the financial health and accountability & transparency of America's largest charities.

HOW MUCH DO PEOPLE GIVE?
Every gift counts, and every gift goes directly to those in need. While there is no minimum or limit, many donors ask what the average gift is. At Atherton, the average gift is between $150-$500. If you would like to contribute, please feel free to contact our Executive Director, Mr. Cassidy Inamasu and he can discuss the programs in more depth. Below is a list of individual scholarship amounts per program. Your gift makes opportunities possible.
