Thank you for choosing to support YMCA Auckland and Hamilton!

You probably know the song but what you may not realise is that YMCA in Auckland and Hamilton is a not-for-profit organisation. For over 160 years we’ve been supporting Kiwis in their local communities with a diverse range of programmes for both children and grown-ups alike - basically helping people achieve healthy and meaningful lives.

Right now New Zealand’s youth suicide rates are shocking, and despite us being the most connected generation ever, families are actually feeling more disconnected than ever before! With obesity and related chronic diseases on the rise, it’s not hard to see that there’s a real need for youth, family and community-centred programmes.

Together we can make a difference to these three key areas of social need:

  • empowering young people to reach their full potential
  • strengthening families to create stronger communities
  • healthy living for everyone

Fundraising and donations to YMCA support our programmes: 

Raise Up: our youth development programme helps young people build leadership skills,  so they can engage their own generation, organising events and activities for other local youth.

Family Camp: our Family Camp programme strengthens families by providing them quality space and time to come together and reconnect in the great outdoors.

Fee Assistance: we think everyone should have access to health and wellbeing. That’s why we introduced Fee Assistance – a financial support system for anyone who needs it - individuals, families or groups. It provides free or subsidised access to YMCA programmes and services for those having a tough time financially.

We’d love you to join our team and fundraising online for YMCA is easy. In just minutes you can build your own fundraising page and email the link to your friends, family and workmates as king for their support.
