Originally founded in 1892 Wells YMCA, now YMCA Mendip & South Somerset, has not only established itself as a well-respected provider of youth services; but has increased its reach in recent years and continues to be responsive to the needs of young people in Mendip & South Somerset.

As an independent, fully autonomous charity we receive no funding from the YMCA Worldwide Federation or YMCA England & Wales.

Our organisation receives money via the contracts gained through our own merits; by applying for funds from grant foundation programmes and through fundraising efforts, with the invaluable support of our community.

Although we sometimes run our own Fundraising Events, which anyone is welcome to be a part of, we are always grateful for individuals or groups to fundraise on our behalf.

If you would like to get involved in one of our fundraising events, please visit our Events/Campaigns page here for further information.

If you would like to organise your own fundraising event, we are delighted; and thank you in advance of your support.

If you need some ideas of what you could do as a fundraiser, please download our fundraising ideas sheet here.

Please get in touch with us at fundraising@mendipymca.org.uk to let us know what you have planned and when.

We can send you a fundraising information pack; and make sure we help promote your event via our website and social media pages.
