Thank you for your support for our work to empower young people and to empower national YMCA Movements all around the world
We make a little go a very long way: we receive annual membership fees from our members, some partnership funds, and donations from companies, organisations and individuals, but the scope of our activity is huge and we always need more. We seek all your support – be it financial or otherwise.
We thank you for involvement in our work, and pledge to keep you informed about the work we do with your money.

General donations

Your donation will be added to our core budget which covers our work in youth empowerment, Movement strengthening, advocacy and partnership, resource mobilisation, and communications.
