It Starts Here on National Philanthropy Day

In celebration of National Philanthropy Day on November 15, the YMCA has been featured in a special Philanthropy in Canada insert in the Globe and Mail newspaper. Using stories of members from YMCA’s across Canada, the article talks about the charitable mission of YMCA’s in Canada.

One of our own YMCA of Oakville members, Niya, is featured in the editorial, and her story is a perfect example of what YMCA’s in Canada have always been dedicated to: improving the health and well-being of Canadians in spirit, mind and body since 1851. Read the Globe and Mail editorial
