Why We Fundraise

You can ensure people of all ages in our community have access to YMCA programs and services. 

Did you know?

- 1 in 7 YMCA members need financial assistance to come to the Y 

- 20% of our local population belong to a low-income household (highest percentage in all of Grey-Bruce)

Annual fundraising allows your YMCA, a charity, to offer financial assistance with membership to people in need.  Your YMCA provides vital community services that are having a positive impact on some of our region’s most pressing social issues — from health and wellness to child care, social isolation to poverty, the Y is making people’s lives better.  The goal is for all people to have access to this.

The Y’s purpose is to strengthen our communities and we work hard to make sure that money is not a barrier for anyone to join us. You can help.
