We are proud to announce the YMCA of Orange County has received the 2019 Platinum Seal of Transparency on GuideStar! This is the highest possible ranking you can achieve with GuideStar. The Platinum Seal of Transparency measures results over ratios. To achieve this level an organization must be transparent in sharing metrics that relate to those served either by services or financial aid. This is not related to the organizations finances or number of employees, but rather to how many people are being impacted by the services we offer. As an organization, last year we:
- Invested $2.8 million in free community programming
- Provided $1.1 million in financial assistance
- Served over 60,000 members in 20 cities
- Provided 7,804 children a safe place to go after school each day
Thank you for your continued support in making this success happen. We are extremely proud of our staff, partners, volunteers and community for working hard to be sure that the Y is there when people need us most. But all the metrics in the world could not measure the gifts of joy, safety, health, hope, education and belonging we provide each day. This is the true achievement!
