YMCA 175 BIRTHDAY CAMPAIGN - NEWS #1

4th July 2018

At YMCA Europe's 2018 General Assembly in May in Germany, the YMCA 175 Birthday Campaign has been launched officially.

Launch of Campaign
The goal of this fundraising campaign is to motivate at least 1.000 local YMCAs or individuals all over Europe, and worldwide, to donate each an amount of 175 Euro. The campaign will run one year, until June 6th, 2019, when the YMCA will celebrate its 175th Birthday.

Our fundraise goal is the amount of 175.000 Euro which YMCA Europe intend to use to support the participation of young people at our Event "YMCA175" from 4-8 August 2019 in London.

  • Campaign materials (collecting boxes, postcards) can be ordered at our office in Prague, emailing at 175[at]ymcaeurope.com
  • A Roll-Up can be borrowed, too.

Current Stand of donations

  • Fundraise goal: 1.000 persons/YMCA = 175.000 Euro (100 %)
  • Pledges: 82 persons/YMCAs = 14.350 Euro (8,2 %)
  • Received donations: 12 persons/YMCAs = 2.700 Euro (1,5 %)

This looks encouraging, for the first month of campaign. Please share and ask your YMCA friends to join in!
