YMCA Newcastle is transparent when it comes to our spending.

We believe our donors and supporters deserve a clear, accurate breakdown of our expenditure so that they can be confident that their donations provide the best value for our young people. 

We are an independent charity: we are a member of the national YMCA federation, but we maintain separate legal and financial independence. Consequently, we are responsible for raising all of our funds ourselves and our supporters play a huge role in helping us to be there for young people!

Budget breakdown

93p of every £1.00 donated to us is spent directly on our services for young people. 

Donate Now

We are appealing for funds to support our youth work activities across the City. Council and government funding now represents just 2% of our annual revenue and we need your help to ensure we can continue to support young people.

We are proud to match every £35 donated to us with £75 of income we earn from our property assets and social enterprises. We have established two social enterprises: an urban farming business and a community cafe in the heart of Walker Park. Both businesses provide high-quality employment and apprenticeship opportunities for our young people and we anticipate they will be sustainable within the next three years, with all profit funding our youth work activities at SPACE2... and in Walker. Your donations will help us to achieve sustainability while simultaneously supporting young people into employment.
