YMCA Open Doors – financial assistance

YMCA Victoria helps local people in need become healthier, happier and more connected to their community. We focus on positive change and believe that everybody has a right to equal access to physical, mental and social well-being.

While hundreds of thousands of Victorians access YMCA programs or services on a weekly basis, we are concerned about the vast number who cannot due to their social and economic situations. By supporting the Y through donating, volunteering or fundraising, you are helping to provide access to opportunities for all people to grow in body, mind and spirit.
