YMCA Calgary is a city-wide force for community-building

We know that there are inequities in our city so we make it our everyday mission to ensure our doors are open to everyone regardless of their financial situation. To do this, each year we ask the community to help us raise money so that no one is turned away. When you make a donation to YMCA Calgary, 100% of your donation is directed to the program area you choose.

We need leaders to stand beside us in our mission. Together, we will build a healthier, more connected, community!
