April 2020

The YMCA of Fredericton been offering programs and services to our community for 162 years in the areas of Health, Fitness & Aquatics Programs, Summer Day Camps, Employment Services, Child Care and After School Programs.  Our main priority is the health of our staff, members and the broader community.  As a socially responsible community organization, we feel it is important to help with our Community’s efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19.  As you know, the current pandemic situation has resulted in our temporary closure.

We have been truly humbled by the number of people who have reached out and asked to support the YMCA during this time by either continuing their membership fee payment back to the Association as a donation or making a one-time gift.  Coming together as a local community to support one another has never been more important than it is today, and we would like to thank each and every person who is thinking of supporting local charities in the midst of this crisis.  When this unprecedented time is over and our facilities re-open, our Community will need YMCA programs and services more than ever.  Our focus will continue to be on accessibility to the YMCA for those in need.  We believe that everyone deserves the right to lead an active healthy lifestyle regardless of their financial situation. 

To Donate:  Currently the best way to do so is to go to our online donation portal, found on our website through the DONATE NOW button.   Gifts can also be mailed to the YMCA of Fredericton, 570 York Street, Fredericton, NB, E3B 3R2.

We love our community and have set up several online fitness options for you to access during our closure.  When we re-open, we look forward to welcoming you back into our programs and services.  If you have any questions, please contact me at  shawna.white@ymcafredericton.org.

I encourage you to follow our website and social media channels as they are updated on a regular basis.
