Ways to Donate

Donate to YMCA

We work with over one million young people each year, offering support when and where they need it most. You can support this vital work by making a regular gift, a one-off donation, or by becoming a Roomsponsor.

Single Gift

Right now thousands of homeless young people are frantically searching for somewhere safe to sleep tonight. You could provide them with a warm, safe place to stay.

A donation of £25 to the YMCA today could pay for a hot meal and a warm bed at a YMCA hostel. Please help us protect a vulnerable young homeless person in danger with a donation.


Regular Gift

We believe that no young person should be forced to sleep rough. That's why, every night, we give over 7000 homeless young people a safe place to stay for as long as they need.

We work tirelessly to keep young people off the streets and give them the tools they need to rebuild their lives. But we need your help to keep our doors open.

By setting up a regular gift to the YMCA today, you will enable us to plan ahead to give the young people we support the long term help they need. Your regular donation could help a young person get off the streets for good.
