Raising Funds - Donations - Gift Aid - Text

- who supports us and how you can too - with Gift Aid, eBay, Texts, Payroll Giving  

Some of our work is funded through contracts and purchasing arrangements with local or national statutory agencies.  However, to deliver intensive one-to-one support needed by young people we work with, we raise additional funds and donations from a wide range of sources - such as charitable trusts, grants, individual donors, businesses, local groups, churches, schools, Lions, Rotary, Round Table, Big Lottery Fund [we list most in our Trustees Annual Report ] and of course the efforts of young people themselves alongside our staff and volunteers, on sponsored walks/climbs/kayaking, making and selling greetings cards and food, fun runs, and boot fairs.  If you would like to help in these challenges / venture please contact us as a potential volunteer. 

We are most grateful to all our supporters and particularly those churches, local groups, businesses and Trusts who have funded West Kent YMCA for several years.
