100 Reasons Y Campaign to build a New Barrie YMCA (www.100reasonsY.ca)
This will be a new kind of Y – a hub that will house traditional Y programs while supporting other opportunities for the public, our membership, and our community partners.
A planned or legacy gift ensures you’ll continue supporting the causes close to you in the future. If you plan for your legacy during your lifetime, you can see first-hand the difference your support will make for many children, youth, and families across Simcoe County, Muskoka, and the District of Parry Sound. A planned gift can be made to any of the campaigns described above.
