Every donation to the YMCA goes towards helping people in our communities live healthier, more fulfilling lives. Whether you want to provide ongoing support, pay tribute to someone or leave a legacy, there are many ways to give to the YMCA in addition to a one-time donation.

Monthly Gifts

Monthly giving is the easiest and most convenient way to make a difference to your YMCA. Simply select the option to “Make this a monthly gift” on our donation form and your gift will continue to make an impact throughout the year.

Planned Giving and Bequests

Including the YMCA in your estate or long-term financial planning lets your passion for improving the health of Canadians live on for future generations. If you would like to leave a bequest, gift of life insurance, securities or other options, we can help you plan your gift.

Contact giving@ymca.ca or your local YMCA to learn more.

Make a Gift in Honour or Tribute of Someone Special

A donation to support the work of the YMCA is a wonderful way to honour or remember someone special. To do so, on our donation form, simply select whether to make your gift “In Honour” or “In Memory” of someone. At your request, we can also send a card to the honouree or their family to share the news of your gift.
