The YMCA of Greater Vancouver wrote -
We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to live healthier, happier lives.
The YMCA operates for the good of people and communities rather than for a profit. A key focus of our charitable mission is providing vital services that positively impact some of Canada’s most pressing health and social issues.
The YMCA annual fundraising campaign is focused on raising much needed resources that help kids, youth, adults and seniors get access to proven YMCA community programs.
Last year, through the generosity of 5,114 donors, the YMCA was able to provide 12,647 people with the financial assistance they needed to reach their potential.
