The YMCA ensures that their programs and services are filling the needs of the community – for all people. The YMCA Giving Campaign is the annual campaign to raise funds and awareness of these community needs. The campaign funds are used to assist people in gaining access to YMCA programs and services to help improve and enhance their lives. The Opportunity Fund is a program where the YMCA community gives back to help fellow members become healthier, stronger and happier.
The goal is to raise enough money each year so that no one is turned away for inability to pay. More than 20% of YMCA members are receiving financial support.
- Any individual who is unable to pay the full membership or program fee in Northern Alberta
- Our international YMCA partners in Colombia and Ukraine

Plan Your Legacy
The YMCA recognizes and honours those who have included the YMCA in their estate plans. Formally known as the 'Heritage Club', members plan their gifts to create endowment funds at either The Edmonton YMCA Foundation or the Edmonton Community Foundation.
Edmonton YMCA Foundation
The Edmonton YMCA Foundation was formed on January 4, 1991 for the purpose of holding and investing endowment funds for the YMCA, and for investing earnings on those funds in YMCA programs, services and facilities. The Foundation supports current YMCA programs and is creating a legacy to ensure that the Y will continue to build strong kids, strong families and strong communities for generations to come.
