Now more than ever, your generosity will make a difference

In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, and guided by our core values of honesty, care, respect and responsibility, YMCA Calgary has made the extremely difficult decision to close our facilities and programs effective March 16, 2020.

This decision was not taken lightly as it directly affects many staff, volunteers and the tens of thousands of people we serve. Every effort is being made to support our staff, volunteers, members and participants that rely on the YMCA to support their wellbeing during this challenging time.

In response to the crisis, we are pivoting our work to support a healthy and vibrant community in new and innovative ways. A small team of staff are still in place to develop resources to support the community during this health crisis, plan the re-mobilization of critical community programs and maintain our facilities to ensure our reopening is as timely and efficient as possible when permitted.

Now more than ever, your generosity will make a difference!

YMCA Calgary is a charity and we rely on membership, rental and program revenue to operate our facilities and run programs that support a healthy community.

By giving to YMCA Calgary right now, your donation will help us:

  • Develop solutions to support the community in their physical, emotional and social health
  • Adapt current programs to continue supporting vulnerable populations we serve
  • Maintain facilities for reopening
  • Provide an employee assistance program for laid off staff

YMCA Calgary has been supporting the Calgary community for over 118 years and we stand resolved in our mission to serve the community now and for many years to come.
