BIn 2018, through the generosity of donors, 2,698 individuals were supported through the Y’s Strong Communities Campaign.  Donations provided an opportunity to send children from Saint John to camp, help a child from a priority neighbourhood learn to swim, support seniors or give parents a piece of mind knowing their children are in a safe place while they work. The Strong Communities Campaign supports all ages and stages. No one is turned away from the Y.

We can’t do this work alone! When you support the Y, you are helping to build healthy communities, where everyone belongs. There are many ways to get involved and the impact you, your business or your group of friends can make is life changing.

- Employee Payroll Giving                       - Custom Pre Sell Fundraiser        - Peer to Peer Campaign
