As a registered charity, YMCA Birmingham is reliant on your personal donations, fundraising and sponsorship to provide services and facilities for young people and the community.
You can help to inspire young people by donating through our Virgin Money Giving account. Click an option below to donate.
Make a single donation
Right now countless young people are frantically searching for somewhere safe to sleep tonight. Make a one-off donation and answer to a young person calling for help, securing them a warm bed for the night and a hot meal at YMCA.
How your donation can help
- £15 could provide an hour of counselling for a traumatised young person
- £25 could provide one night’s emergency accommodation
- £40 could help pay for a half days job search workshop to get a young person back into work
- £100 could help heat the YMCA accommodation during the winter
- £500 could provide a residential training course to build the confidence & skills of a young person
Make a regular gift
With a regular gift to YMCA you will always be there for young people in need. No matter how much you can donate, you will provide a safe place to stay, support, advice and training to young people every day of the year, all across the Black Country.
The Orchard is no traditional hostel. It will be a landmark facility with 83 units of supported accommodation and a state of the art youth and community centre.
It will provide a new hub for the YMCA’s existing work with disadvantaged people, especially the young, and will provide top quality facilities for the whole community.
For those who would otherwise be homeless The Orchard will provide a safe and stable environment. In return The Orchard will encourage them to give something back through voluntary activity and social enterprise.
