Our Key Philanthropic Programmes

Fee Assistance

It is our aim that no person willing, but unable, to pay will be denied access to YMCA Auckland programmes or services. YMCA Auckland is committed to ensuring opportunities for all.

We believe that participation in any of our programmes and services should not be restricted to the financially privileged.

Fee Assistance is available across all of our programme areas, for individuals, families, or groups. It can be used to provide free
access to programmes and membership, or can provide partial subsidy dependent on the individual’s ability to pay.

Help make healthy lifestyles accessible to all.

Family Camp

Family Camp is a unique programme based on hosting families for a weekend of cabin based camping, the intent is to provide families with an opportunity to get away from the pressures of daily life; to step outside of their normal environments and spend time together connecting as a family unit.

Increasingly families face challenges and distractions in their daily lives that become barriers to quality time together. The intent of Family Camp is to create opportunities for family members to spend time together, connecting and strengthening bonds as a family unit. Family Camp aims to deliver experiences that families may not often get an opportunity to participate in.

Your donation will help funds the cost of participation for attendees.

Raise Up

The aim of Raise Up, YMCA Wellington’s youth development programme, is to empower young people by providing a safe and healthy environment in which to thrive and achieve their goals.

Raise Up, has celebrated another successful year of creating opportunities for young people and supporting them to make a positive change in their communities. The programme, now in its 14th year, has grown to over 200 crew members. With your support these young people have hosted 39 events, bringing in a recorded 16,944 visits to local recreation spaces.

We are incredibly grateful for continued support has enabling us to expand our programme into more locations and help us continue to engage.
