Why Your Gift Matters

You change their lives...

When you give to the YMCAs of Québec Foundation, you are providing young people with a safe and stimulating place to go when they are not at home or at school, an alternative to the mall or the streets. From homework help to tutors for teens, you are helping kids succeed in school. You are inspiring them to love being active at an early age and to live a healthy life. You are making it possible for more kids, young people and families to access YMCA services and activities, regardless of their income. Thousands of participants, countless lives changed… forever. 

Your dollars do more at the Y

Your donation has a big impact because it allows our employees and volunteers to change young people’s health habits and their attitude towards school. It also makes it possible for us to offer opportunities and a support network to those who need it most.  

  • Knowing that 91% of teens are not physically active enough, you help us provide hundreds of young people with the opportunity to play sports in a safe environment.
  • In Québec, where 10,000 young people leave school without graduating, you ensure that young people with problems at school have the help they need to succeed.
  • For teens who don't know what to do after school, you give them a place to go where they have fun being active, get help with their homework and receive guidance from trusted adults.
  • When summer season comes around, you can be proud that you’re helping children learn basic swimming skills and stay safe.

Thank you.
