Donating to YMCA Chelmsford couldn’t be simpler…
Just Text Giving
YMCA Chelmsford is amongst the first charities in the country to use its own, unique personalised text code, CHYM44, to raise funds using JustTextGiving by Vodafone.
This is a brand new, free service for charities that has no set up or fundraising costs for charities, no network charges for people making donations and every penny donated goes to charity. Gift Aid can also be added to donations.
You can make donations of up to £10 by texting “CHYM44” and either £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10 to 70070 to make your donation. The text message is free and all of the donation will be passed to YMCA Chelmsford.
You can download a standing order form using the link below and send it off to your bank. It would be helpful for us to also have a copy of your form so that we might confirm receipt. If you are a UK tax payer, we would benefit by you completing a gift aid form.

If you would like further details on how a gift aid form works or have any questions on standing orders or general donations, please contact our Finance team by email or call 01245 355677.
All donations are welcome: cash, cheque or standing order. Please make cheques payable to “Chelmsford YMCA Limited”.
Remember us in your will
If you would like to make a lasting difference in the life of a child or young person, consider remembering YMCA Chelmsford in your will. We have a number of fantastic projects and services across Chelmsford which would benefit directly from your legacy, and you have the option of requesting that your gift is allocated to a specific project area. If you would like to talk to someone about this, please call us on 01245 355677 and ask to speak to our CEO Andy Drake.
