"Please – we would like to work with your money. You can give us your time as well. Your YMCA."
This is the not entirely uncontroversial title of the introductory flyers we printed about the Leipzig YMCA. In fact, we do need financial and professional support. In addition to the donors whose funds we can use freely, there is a group of supporters without whom we could not carry out our comprehensive work. The renting of rooms and real estate, and the operation of our own solar-power system, provide a secure basic income for our association.
After the motto "sharing makes rich," we gladly share our wealth, using both the youth thanks offering and the annual sponsor's rally for this. We are especially the recipients of the generosity of our cooperating partners and our partner companies, who help us to continue to develop the YMCA and to develop joint projects together.
