In Grade 11, Niya was lost and directionless. She joined a YMCA leadership program where she developed her skills and became active in her community. It changed her life. Now, Niya is a YMCA camp counsellor and is looking forward to starting college. She has the foundation to build a bright future. Thanks to gifts made by YMCA of Kingston donors youth in our community just like Niya have a chance to show their true skills and passion.
At the YMCA of Kingston, we believe that a person’s health should not be determined by the neighbourhood you live in or the size of your bank account – that financial circumstances should never be a barrier to participation. We are dedicated to removing barriers for people of all ages and stages.
Your gift removes financial barriers to participation and provides a hand-up to children, youth, and families who otherwise could not participate in our programs. Thanks to the support from individuals like you, membership and program assistance is available for those in need.
Your gift will go a long way in supporting a healthy lifestyle for children, youth, and families in our community. YMCA programs are proven to have a positive impact on low-income children, youth and families, dramatically enhancing their health and overall well-being, both today and well into the future.
Please contact Anita Mercier, Manager of Funds Development directly if you’d like more information on how your generous gifts are being used to help us build a strong community.
You may reach Anita by telephone at 613-546-2647 extension 249 or by email at Anita_mercier@kingston.ymca.ca.
