December is a time to confirm commitments, but also continue to talk about the possibilities with new donors. Many of these new donors are finding YW through other donors, as our message spreads and excitement for the project builds. In November, friends of YW hosted four events to help spread the word and raise funds toward the campaign.
Some donors do not know that there are many opportunities to create a legacy through their gift. Naming opportunities exist across the new Hub, including naming of a room in the transitional shelter, multi-purpose room or a group counselling suite. Naming offers the opportunity for a family, a business or an individual donor to honour a loved one or to have their business publicly associated with such an important community project.
If you would like to learn more about naming opportunities or have YW speak with your business or community group, email Jan, Vice President, Resource Development at
