The YMCAs of Québec Foundation

More than a gym. A cause.

Since 1984, the YMCAs of Québec Foundation has supported the mission of the YMCA to inspire and encourage everyone to reach their full potential, thrive and contribute to their community.

Your donation makes it possible for the YMCA to offer activities and services to 120,000 people a year, 25% of which are youth. By supporting the YMCA of Québec Foundation, you are giving people of all backgrounds a chance to grow, learn and succeed.

Over the course of its 170 years of community service, the YMCA has evolved and adapted to respond to community needs, even in difficult times. Today, the Y’s social role and its values of solidarity, caring and inclusion are more relevant than ever.

Thank you for supporting the YMCAs of Québec Foundation and for helping us to positively impact the health and well-being of individuals and to build stronger and more caring communities.

Mission of the YMCAs of Québec Foundation: To support the Association of the YMCAs of Québec and ensure its financial sustainability by promoting the impact it has on the community, raising funds and administering these funds responsibly.

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!
