As a charity, the YMCA provides vital community services that are having a positive impact on some of Oakville’s most pressing social issues — from health and wellness to children’s education, social isolation to poverty, the Y is making people’s lives better.

The Y’s purpose is to help individuals grow in spirit, mind and body through a supportive network, and we work hard to make sure that money is not a barrier for anyone to join us.

Research shows that your financial situation, type of work, education and neighbourhood all have a significant impact on your health. We believe that everyone deserves the chance to lead a healthy life, and your bank account should not be a barrier.

When you say YES! to a donation to the YMCA, you’re helping hundreds of people in your community to lead a better life.

As a charity, we rely on donations to carry out our work, such as delivering much-needed community-based services or providing financial assistance to low-income families so they can access the programs they need.

By donating to the YMCA Strong Community Campaign, you’re joining a group of people who are dedicated to making Oakville a stronger community in which everyone can lead a healthy life regardless of the size of their bank account.
