Be part of Halifax’s new YMCA! Donate today.

Whether you choose to make a one-time donation or make a pledge for up to five years, your contribution will bring us one step closer to realizing a healthier and more connected, inclusive, caring, and prosperous community.

You’ll receive a charitable tax receipt from us for all donations of $25 or more. Charitable tax receipts can reduce the actual cost of your gift by up to 54% (for residents of Nova Scotia), depending on the amount donated and your income tax bracket.

We have many options available to help you make a gift to the YMCA in support of the John W. Lindsay YMCA. Please call us with any questions!
