The YMCAs of Québec Foundation

Together, to make our communities shine.

Since 1984, the YMCAs of Québec Foundation has helped build healthy communities where young people as well as vulnerable people can achieve their full potential by ensuring the YMCAs of Québec’s philanthropic activities. Thanks to the support of its donors and partners, the Foundation acts as a vector for change, reducing inequalities and promoting social inclusion to give everyone an equal opportunity to shine. Its purpose is to raise and administer funds responsibly so YMCAs can provide programs and services that are tailored to the needs and realities of communities across Québec.

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 the province of Québec, where 10,000 young people leave school without graduating, you ensure that those 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, where they 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 in or near the water.

Thank you!
