Supporting the Y's Charitable Mission
Founded in 1867, the YMCA-YWCA of the National Capital Region is a registered charity dedicated to building healthy communities. The organization is committed to nurturing the potential of children, teens and young adults, promoting healthy living and supporting vulnerable people within the community. The Y serves more than 75,000 people across the Ottawa region annually. A focus on inclusiveness and accessibility means people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities are served through all stages of life; and through its financial assistance programs, the Y is accessible to all.
In order to support our charitable mission of turning no one away from accessing the services and programs provided by the Y, the Financial Development department organizes several major fundraising events and campaigns throughout the year to help raise funds to support this cause. We hope you'll join us by participating in an event, purchasing a sponsorship level, or making a donation to help ensure no one in our community is turned away from accessing the Y.
