Become a Legacy Bridge Builder

When you support YSM via a gift in your Will or another planned giving option, it is a meaningful way to leave a legacy that changes lives, builds community, and transforms Toronto for decades to come.

As both the cost of living in Toronto and the needs for YSM’s services increase, your legacy plans can ensure your continued investment in breaking the cycle of generational poverty which affects so many in our city.

Whether you already know that you intend to include YSM in your planned giving and estate plans, or whether you would like more information about the ways in which you can leave a legacy through YSM, we hope you’ll take a moment to contact Angela Solomos, our Vice-President of Philanthropy, using the form below.

“As a child, I was raised by a single mother
who worked hard to care for my sister and me.
It was often difficult for us. That gave me a heart
to do all I can to help neighbours in need.
That’s a legacy I want to leave for our city.”
