Opportunities to Give

Strong Kids Annual Campaign

The YMCA Strong Kids Campaign raises funds to improve and enrich the lives of children, adults, seniors and families throughout Cape Breton.

Thanks to the generous gifts from donors like you, many people who face financial barriers can access the YMCAs services, such as: YMCA memberships, health and wellness programs and child and youth programs.

Everyone belongs at the Y!
We hope that you will join us in reducing barriers to access by donating today.

Other Opportunities to Give

We aim to provide safe, accessible community spaces where everyone belongs. You may also choose to direct your gift to an area such as YMCA capital improvements. These major projects ensure that the YMCA facilities and assets remain relevant, sustainable, and environmentally friendly as we serve our community today and for generations to come.

The YMCA hosts multiple fundraising events throughout the year. Past events include YMCA Monte Carlo, Y Lotto Toonie Draw and Spring Into Motion. We’re working on our event plans for 2023 and invite you to check back early next year for an update on our fundraising events.
