Your donation to the YMCA supports our ability to be a centre of community where potential grows, everyone belongs and health goals are achieved everyday.  

Supporting the YMCA means supporting your neighbours - individuals, children and families in our community, across all generations, means and abilities.  We build kids up, give youth a safe place to belong, and help people of all ages gain new skills, build confidence and overcome challenges like isolation, obesity and chronic disease.

By supporting a place where potential, health and belonging is possible we ensure:

  • a better quality of life for all our neighbours
  • a safer and more engaged community
  • a brighter future for more local kids and families

Your donation will specifically help provide access for those who need financial assistance to participate at the A.R. Kaufman Family YMCA, the Chaplin Family YMCA, the Stork Family YMCA or attend one of our YMCA camps. It will support a child who needs extra help with school through the Beyond the Bell program, a newcomer youth feel welcome and encourage wellness with an adult living with a chronic disease.
