Donate when you shop at Kroger & Amazon!

Make an Impact

We are very grateful to partner with companies like Kroger and AmazonSmile that will send a portion of their earnings to various non-profits as donations.

Choose to do your holiday shopping with these companies, and you will strengthen your community by helping to fund the Dow Bay Area Family YMCA Financial Assistance Program. This fund directly benefits the members of our community who support the YMCA’s mission, but can not afford to participate in its programming that practices Christian principles through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. Together with your help, we have fed thousands of youth, provided sports scholarships to hundreds of kids, and supported our senior citizens by offering discounted rates.
