YMCA Scarborough is a registered charity (number 250527) and we depend on donations to continue our work with the town’s young people.

Giving today’s young people a better tomorrow

We provide opportunities for everyone – especially young people, to develop skills, experience and self-confidence through a range of activities. Sport, art, theatre and volunteering all give people the chance to meet new friends, learn something about themselves and how to give support to others. Our 290-seat theatre enables us to give young people the opportunity to perform on a professionally-equipped stage, or learn the technical aspects of backstage work.

Why the community needs us

We have a long history of helping young people become skilled, capable adults. We don’t put labels on anyone, we don’t call things by fancy names. We provide opportunities for young people to enjoy learning new skills alongside people of all ages. For some young people, it’s performing on stage that excites them. For others, it’s learning the technical aspects of theatre. For others, it may be sport, or volunteering, or something else. Life’s complicated enough, so we try to keep things simple.

All of this costs money and, as we receive no regular funding from local, regional or national government, we must raise every penny needed to support local people with the opportunities that we provide.

We love one-off donations and we absolutely adore it when people choose to support us on a monthly basis.  Please contact us if you would like to discuss supporting us in this way.

Corporate Sponsorship

We have been very fortunate to receive the sponsorship support of a number of businesses over the years. Companies looking to give support to a worthwhile and effective cause know that money given to YMCA Scarborough will help young people in practical ways – what we do is not ‘rocket science’ but it works and has been working for many, many years.

If you would like to discuss how your company might be able to support YMCA Scarborough, please get in touch. We would love to hear from you.
