Endowment is seen as the single best way from a financial perspective to keep the Y going. Building our endowment allows people to be part of a larger family, and affords us the autonomy to focus on everyone’s needs. Our simple desire is for you, your children, and your grandchildren to always have a community centre in Montreal, and through this campaign and ongoing commitments by donors, we are succeeding!
Funds received have bolstered our endowment and allow us to invest in People, Programs, and Facilities.
People: We have established permanent scholarship funds to subsidize those who are financially disadvantaged. The funds will ensure that no child is left out and ensures that the Y is open to all.
Programs: We have continued the Y’s excellence in programming and we provide an unparalleled offering of quality services that respond to the ever-changing needs of the community. This includes the continuous upgrading of equipment and the development of new programs for children, youth, families, and seniors. We operate exceptional children’s camps and include children with special needs, as well as integrate recent immigrants into our family.
Facilities: We continue to maximize the existing facilities to ensure that all YM-YWHA programs have a place to serve the needs of the community as well as world-class athletics programs. Our endowment fund helps ensure that the Y is a safe haven for children, youth and families. It is a place to share, to laugh, and to belong.
