Donate Strong Kids Annual Campaign

The YMCA is for Everyone

At the Sault Ste. Marie YMCA, we believe that everyone should be able to participate in programs they need, regardless of their ability to afford the full fees. That’s because the YMCA is open to everyone - all ages, backgrounds, abilities and financial circumstances.

The Strong Kids Campaign is our annual campaign to raise funds and awareness of our 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. Our Sponsored Membership Program is the program where the YMCA 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. The Sault Ste. Marie YMCA assist approximately 30% of our members with programs and memberships.

The Sault Ste. Marie YMCA Strong Kids Campaign has begun! 

Everyone is welcome at our YMCA, which is why we offer subsidized memberships and programs for those individuals who might not otherwise be able to access our services due to financial limitations.  The Strong Kids Campaign is an annual fundraising campaign focused on raising much needed resources to give kids opportunities to live healthier, happier lives now and to grow into productive adults.  Supporting Strong Kids directly supports children, teens and young adults in our community.
In 2014, we provided over $300,000 support in assisted memberships and $62,000 in assisted day camp registrations.  The need for support is not declining as people in our community experience financial hardships, lack of employment opportunities and rising costs.
Please consider making a donation either through your monthly membership payment, at the Membership Sales & Service Desk, through one of our volunteer fundraisers or by clicking the Donate Now button below.
Thank-you for your on-going support!
