Your health should not be determined by the size of your bank account or the neighbourhood you live in.

But that is the reality facing many people in our communities. As a charity, we believe everyone deserves the opportunity to lead healthy lives, regardless of where they live or their circumstances.

Your donation will benefit your whole community. Research shows that when people feel a sense of belonging, their health improves — physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. And our communities benefit too. There’s less illness, violence, and inequality and more giving and happiness.

That’s why for over 165 years we have created centres of community where children, teens, and adults can come together to get the support they need to be healthier in spirit, mind, and body. Through our financial assistance program, everyone can access the YMCA regardless of their ability to pay the fee.

Lend your support by making a gift to your YMCA today. 

If you would like to direct your donation to your local YMCA, please visit their website to donate directly.
