Help Build a Resilient Community

Make a Difference

The YMCA of Oakville is more than a place, we are a cause. From exercise to education, volleyball to volunteerism, or preschool to preventative health, the YMCA doesn’t just strengthen bodies—the YMCA strengthens community.

Our community is not immune to the financial pressures facing Canadian families. One in 12 children live at or below the poverty line in Oakville. We expect that number to increase because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The YMCA has faced these challenges over our 175 years of serving communities. Together, we will face this one too.

As a registered charity, the YMCA of Oakville is fortunate to have a community that embraces the opportunity to donate; thereby making it possible for everyone to be enriched by YMCA membership and programming.

Every dollar you contribute will be amplified, thanks to the generous matching donation from June and Ian, who have committed to adding 50% to all Annual Campaign donations.

We are proud to report that the YMCA awarded almost $700,000 in financial assistance to our Oakville community. $340,000 was a direct result of contributions from people like you, who believe we are #StrongerTogether.
