Host a fundraiser for YES

Thank you for your interest in supporting youth and families in Nogojiwanong/Peterborough. All of our programs need donations from the community to keep going (including our Emergency Shelter!), so your help is crucial.

Hosting a fundraiser for YES is easy.

Whether it’s asking for contributions for your birthday, or hosting an event where ticket proceeds go to YES, we welcome it. If you plan to promote your fundraiser on social media, please tag us, and we will share it to our stories – our handle is @yesshelterptbo

If you would like to use our logo, please do. Email info@yesshelter.ca to request a high res version.

To set up a way to accept online donations for your fundraiser, please click here. This is a great way to collect contributions, because all people who give to your page are sent a receipt immeadiately, and the funds are distributed directly to YES when you choose us as your beneficiary.


All fundraising activities should uphold and reflect the mission and values of YES:

  • Mission: YES works to reduce and prevent homelessness by providing shelter, education and transitional supports for youth and families in Peterborough and the Kawarthas.
  • Values: advocacy, pride, dignity, compassion, and equity

We cannot accept proceeds from any event or group that goes against YES’s mission and values.
