Donate to the YMCA

Today, our communities face rapid growth and complex social issues. Our residents struggle with the need for improved health, education, and social services. Our young people are not being challenged to live to their fullest potential.

Your donations can help us address these challenges by building strong kids, strong families and strong communities.

Make a single gift

Right now countless young people are frantically searching for somewhere safe to sleep tonight. Make a one-off donation and answer to a young person calling for help, securing them a warm bed for the night and a hot meal at YMCA.

Here are just a few of our generous donators to whom we give a great big thank you for their kindness:

Mrs Louise Farthing

Mrs Yvonne Cranmer and family

Mr & Mrs Simpson
