We believe in empowering young people in body, mind and spirit so they can experience fullness of life.

As a local Christian charity we are passionate about empowering young people to reach their full potential in body, mind and spirit.

Some may have been in care, others are contending with family breakdown and poor mental health whilst others are experiencing the negative effects of homelessness.

You can pledge to make a one-off donation or a regular monthly donation, both of which help us sustain our services in a challenging environment.

Whether you are an individual, represent a church or business, or part of a community group, we value each and every donation, and thank you for championing young people across the area.

Leave a gift in your Will

YMCA Exeter was founded in 1846 as one of the first YMCAs in the world over 170 years later we remain dedicated to helping young people build a brighter future in Devon. In fact we now support over 1000 children & young people every year in their time of need, helping them overcome adversity and reach their unique potential. For some this will be providing them with a safe home after they have experienced homelessness. For others it will be helping them with employability skills and still for others it will be creating welcoming environments where trusted adults can support them through tough circumstances.

As we celebrate over 170 years, we invite you leave a gift in your Will and join our 170 Legacy Giving Programme. Your gift will help ensure that YMCA Exeter is here in another 170 years.

This could be a gift of £170, £1,700 or £17,000 to help celebrate our 170th Anniversary, or it could be any other amount you choose at your discretion.
