Make a Donation to the YMCA | Ways to Give Back to Your Community
At the YMCA, thousands of people give their time, talent and treasure in a way that impacts those who need it most. Last year, $1,085,959 in program assistance was provided to youth, seniors and families at the YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka. Without support from community members like Russ & Keitha, our friends and neighbours couldn’t access valuable YMCA programs. Our doors are open to Anne and Marilyn because of you!
Anne weighed 340 lbs. She was facing morbid obesity, her liver full of fat, and blood pressure uncontrolled before joining the Y. Thanks to donations made to the YMCAs Annual Campaign, Anne was able to get a subsidized membership, feeling stronger than ever. Anne’s life has changed completely.
“My Y helped me become healthy. My Y is going to be in my life, for the rest of my life. “
Grandmothers like Marilyn, rely on the YMCA to provide meaningful and fun programs for her grandkids, Devon and Alex. “If it wasn’t for the YMCA helping me bring them here, I couldn’t afford [camp for the boys]. It’s a lifesaver, fun for my grandchildren, and I can see the difference.”
The legacy of the YMCA.
Over the past few years, thanks to the generous support of our communities, the Orillia and Collingwood YMCAs have been renovated and expanded, and are currently renewing the main facility at YMCA Camp Kitchikewana. These centres will now be available for many more years, allowing thousands more children and families to access Y programs.
We know we will continue to make an impact on families and children in the future, thanks to the incredible generosity of our legacy donors, who have left the YMCA and those we serve in their estates, life insurance and wills.
