Why Your Gift Matters

You change their lives...

Not everyone gets the chance to learn, grow and thrive in a welcoming and inclusive environment. Each year, your gifts to the YMCAs of Québec Foundation help the YMCA build a world where children, youth and vulnerable adults can lead active, healthy and engaged lives, thrive, and achieve their dreams… 

When you give to the YMCAs of Québec Foundation...

  • You are providing young people with a safe and stimulating place to go to, an alternative to the mall or the streets, when they are not at home or at school.
  • From homework help to support for teens who are temporarily suspended, 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.
