Youth & Government relies on fundraising to ensure it can continue to provide outstanding statewide educational and social experiences for middle and high school youth. 

fundraising support annual campaign

Support Our Annual Campaign

The California YMCA Youth & Government program conducts an Annual Support Campaign to raise funds to help support its programs. Contributions to the California YMCA Youth & Government’s Annual Campaign support start-up delegations in under-served regions of the state, provide scholarships for delegates in need, and offer the youth of California a life-changing opportunity. They also allow us to keep the participation fees at a reasonable level. Contact us at to register as a member of the Annual Campaign.

fundraising endowment fund

Governor Deukmejian Endowment Fund

Gifts to California YMCA Youth & Government’s “Governor Deukmejian Endowment Fund” provide a stable, enduring source of funding that protects California YMCA Youth & Government’s ability to positively affect our state’s youth for generations to come. Gifts to the fund’s principal are restricted and only the earnings can be spent.

Each year, the California YMCA Youth & Government Scholarship Committee directs a percentage of the earnings into the scholarship fund for distribution.

Giving can be accomplished through several vehicles that provide substantial tax savings and other important benefits.
