Support the Y

When you support the Y, you are investing in our local community

How you ask? Well, only a portion of the valuable mahi the Y does to nurture, support and develop tamariki, rangatahi and their whānau is funded by government contracts. Your tax-deductible donation – your investment in our community – allows us to provide worthwhile opportunities to those who otherwise would miss out. As little as $5 a week – about the cost of a cup of coffee – allows us to purchase much needed equipment and resources or to employ youth development staff and tutors.
