Support us in making a difference

It’s really easy to find a way to make a difference, and whether your event is big or small, every bit counts. By fundraising for YMCA Cardiff, will create a meaningful and lasting difference to the lives of more than 1500 young people and individuals facing homelessness every year.

Need Inspiration?

Community Day

You don’t need a royal wedding to get everyone out together in your local area. Why not hold a day for all the community and invite everyone to play their part? Set up stalls along your street and invite local businesses to contribute services or donate prizes. Cook up a storm in your kitchens and sell the grub. And provide games and face painting for the kids.

Silly Sock Day

Socks are one of the most commonly requested items by those forced to sleep rough. Put the fun into fundraising by charging everyone a quid to wear truly outlandish socks to work. Then stage a lunchtime fashion show with everyone getting their ankles out for young people who need our support.


Give It Up

Could you go for a month without sugar or, worse, social media? Maybe cheese, chocolate or beer is the thing you’d miss most? Whatever it is, take a rain check on this pesky pleasure in exchange for sponsorship from pals, then watch the pennies (rather than the pounds) pile on.
