Donate to YMCA

You can help YMCA England & Wales and your local YMCA in a number of fun and creative ways; every penny you raise will support our urgent appeal to plug the gap we’re currently facing in our funding due to Covid-19. Your fundraising will help us make sure we can continue to support young people when they need us most.

Visit the links below to find out how you can get involved in our events or even create your own fundraising events in your local community. Alternatively, please follow our virtual events guide to support YMCA from the comfort of your own home.
