Legacy Giving and Gifting


Your legacy or gifts in honour of a loved one say, “YES, we are a community.”

Leaving a legacy gift to YES Shelter for Youth and Families in your will is a simple and powerful way to make a significant impact to disadvantaged youth and families while offering financial benefits to you and your family.

To make a legacy donation, you only need to leave YES Shelter for Youth and Families as a beneficiary in your will.  You can leave a percentage of your estate, a specific cash donation, securities or property. Your lawyer can contact YES for any legal information that is required.

Donation in Memoriam

Celebrate the memory of a loved with a gift that will have an incredible impact on the futures of numerous youth and families. Make a specific donation or choose one of our campaigns in memoriam of a loved one. An acknowledgement of the gift and information about our organization will be sent to your loved one’s family.

Donation in Honour of a Loved One

Celebrate a special occasion with a gift that can change lives. Donate a gift in the name of a loved one who has achieved an important milestone; birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, retirements-your gift pays tribute to the successes of your loved one while bringing opportunity, hope and the chance of success to homeless youth and families. An acknowledgement of your gift and information about our organization will be sent to your loved one.

If you would like to discuss one of these possibilities, contact Suzanne Galloway at sgalloway@yesshelter.ca.
