Fundraising Events

We hold a number of events throughout the year that you can get involved in.

Alternatively, if you have an idea for an event that you’d like to run in aid of YMCA Black Country Group please get in touch.

Emergency Fuel Fund

Due to the current cost of living crisis, many young people either in our supported accommodation units or those living independently are being forced to choose whether to eat or heat their homes.

We are raising money to provide practical support to help our young people navigate the crisis and need your help.

Legacy Giving

Leaving a gift in your will to YMCA Black Country Group will make a huge difference to our work. Your generosity could help us:
  • Provide more accommodation for young people who would otherwise be homeless.
  • Develop more youth clubs for young people in our local communities.
  • Expand our current community group offerings, meaning we can support more local people.

No matter how large or small, leaving us a gift in your Will can help us transform lives.

Business Partnership

Supporting YMCA BC will help make a lasting difference to the lives of young people in the Black Country. At the same time, it will enable your business to be visible at the heart of our local communities.

It’s through the support of ALL our partners that we truly unite the Black Country business community to help us achieve our vision of every young person having a safe place to stay and the means and confidence to belong, contribute and thrive.
