The 2015 YMCA Strong Kids Campaign goal of raising $1.6 million will financially help over 20,000 children and youth access YMCA Calgary programming. This represents 1 in 5 children and youth served by YMCA Calgary.
Kids can help create strong communities for today and for the future, but only if they have the chance to reach their full potential. Your donation will ensure kids can participate in programs to live healthier, happier lives now, but also to grow into productive adults.
The economic impact of keeping our kids healthy and active is proven and documented.
$100 enables a family peace of mind as their child attends Camp Riveredge in a fun, nurturing and safe environment.
$500 can change a child’s life at our residential camp, Camp Chief Hector YMCA.
$1,000 ensures a whole family can enjoy the lasting benefits of regular physical activity at YMCA Calgary for a full year.
$5,000 can teach over 70 children how to swim, ensuring they learn life skills and stay safe.
$10,000 would provide funds for a basketball program to run for a full year, helping children and youth lead a healthy life and make new friends
Gifts of $1,000 or more includes entry into our Chairman’s Round Table program and annual recognition within YMCA Calgary.
YMCA programs vary from community to community but one thing is constant: Every kid deserves a chance and everyone is welcome.
Our goal is only achievable with your generous support. Learn about the ways to donate.
