YMCA: Helping Young People Build A Future

How You Can Help The YMCA relies on the generosity of volunteers and donations which enables us to keep all the facilities and activities running for the local community. It is because of your donations that the YMCA contines to exist and provide the support that young people desperately need. Any donations will assist us greatly in providing young people with a safe place to stay and a solid foundation on which to build a new life. If you are interested in volunteering or making a donation to the YMCA, visit our website at: www.cheltenhamymca.com Infomation on how to join our Sleep Easy Fundraisers can also be found on our website. Fundraise for us There are many ways you can help to raise funds for the YMCA. You can get involved in one of our sponsored events, organise your own fundraising event or get together with people at your YMCA, church, school or place of work to raise funds. However you choose to raise funds for the YMCA, creating a personal fundraising page online is a simple way to collect your donations and sponsorship. Setting up a personal fundraising page cuts out the hassle of distributing forms and collecting cheques or cash. It also automatically registers all donations from UK taxpayers for Gift Aid, which means their donations are worth even more. Fundraising ideas Organising your own fundraising or sponsored event at your home, school, church, YMCA or place of work couldn’t be easier. Don’t forget to contact us for posters, leaflets, branding materials or collecting tins. If you have planned a great event, don’t forget to contact your local press. The more people who know about your efforts, the more money and awareness you’re likely to raise. Here are a few ideas to get you started: Put on an Event Put on an event such as a quiz or a fashion show and sell tickets. Not only is it a great way to raise money, it’s also good fun. Afternoon Teas/Coffee Mornings Why not get baking and have people round for a coffee morning or afternoon tea? You can ask people for a small donation or hold a raffle and sell tickets. Car Boot Sales Set up a table for the YMCA at a car boot sale and sell your unwanted bric-a-brac. Or donate your unwanted items to your local YMCA shop. Sponsored Events The possibilities are endless. Choose an event and collect sponsorship. You could run, swim, dance, sleep, sing, eat or be silent.
