Why support the Student Y?

“Why would a donation to the Student Y be worthwhile when there are poor to feed, ecologies to save, diseases to cure, local clubs, churches and schools to support?”

The answer to the question is that by supporting the Student Y, you are contributing to the development of future leaders who might address these challenges that we face in South African and our world.

The Student Y is a home-away-from-home to those studying and researching at UCT as they grow into tomorrow’s leaders, community builders, researchers, careers for the environment and advocates for justice. The community is a place where we challenge one another to make a difference with their lives. Your support is crucial.

The Student Y UCT is a registered Non-Profit Organisation and a fully chartered member of the National YMCA. Monthly financial reports and annual financial statements are prepared in accordance with the SA legal requirements. We are 100% reliant on donations, and manage our finances according to good stewardship principles.
