PARTNER WITH YSM

There are many ways your group can get involved with YSM’s life-changing work and our more than 100 programs and services for street-involved youth, families in need and adults experiencing chronic poverty.

VOLUNTEER

Use your hands, hearts, and talents to make a true difference in the lives of Toronto neighbours by volunteering at YSM. Short- and long-term volunteer opportunities are available for groups and individuals. Group engagements are being offered through our new dedicated initiative, Project: GENERAT1ON

HOST A FUNDRAISING EVENT

Bake sales, concerts, auctions, or other fun events – whatever you love doing can be a great way to support YSM! Please consider sharing proceeds of the next event you host. Find out how to host a fundraising event in support of YSM, contact us at events@ysm.ca.

DONATE

Your support brings hope and relief to our neighbours in need. Make a one-time gift or provide much-needed ongoing support by joining Partners in Compassion, our monthly supporter program.
Your donations help us continue to provide much needed wrap-around services for those challenged by chronic poverty.

SHARE

Gather your family, colleagues and / or church group in a drive to support YSM, with personal hygiene items, non-perishable foods, gift cards, clothing and even new holiday toys. See a list of high priority needs here.

CORPORATE MATCHING GIFTS

Your employer may offer to match any donations their employees make. With such a program, when you donate to the charity of your choice, your employer will make a matching contribution to that same organization. It’s a wonderful way to have your gift go even further! Click here to see if your employer has a matching gift program, or if they are not listed, ask your Human Resources department.

PRAY
Contact us to learn how you and / or your church family can journey with YSM through our monthly Prayer For the City email, to offer prayer support for those in need.

We’re always happy to talk with you about how your group can partner with YSM. To find out more contact our Community Engagement & Fundraising Specialist, Eleanor Edwards at eedwards@ysm.ca or call 416 929 9614 x 4212.
