Important message from Sensei !
The YMCA Partners Campaign is starting at the end of January and continues through March.
PARTNERS is a scholarship fund and used by the YMCA to help kids and families, who otherwise are unable to afford the cost, to participate in programs such as summer camp, afterschool, care, karate, soccer, basketball, or any offering by the Y.
PARTNERS is funded by contributions from people like you. 100% of the money donated goes to the cause, without administrative overhead deductions, and is used within our local YMCA. Last year the Y helped over 10,000 kids and families. Some of our program members are benefiting from PARTNERS help.
This year, the total goal is $275,000. Our karate program has always been a leader in raising money for Partners. Our karate goal this year is to raise $27,500, 10% of the total money needed.
I believe that with the help of everyone, no matter how little, we can achieve that goal. In these challenging economic times your help is ever more needed.
Your donation is tax deductible. You can do it by check, credit card, cash, or ever by just pledging if you want to donate later this year.
Please see me about this so I can help you with the paperwork and to make sure our karate program is credited.
Thank you for your help.
